Did you say/wonder after reading the last hadith that 1 sa’ (5 liters) of water isn’t enough for you to take a bath?
Narrated Abu Ja’far:
While I and my father were with Jabir bin ‘Abdullah, some People asked him about taking a bath He replied, “A Sa’ of water is sufficient for you.” A man said, “A Sa’ is not sufficient for me.” Jabir said, “A Sa was sufficient for one who had more hair than you and was better than you (meaning the Prophet).” And then Jabir (put on) his garment and led the prayer.
Narrated Abu Salama:
‘Aisha’s brother and I went to ‘Aisha and he asked her about the bath of the Prophet. She brought a pot containing about a Sa’ of water and took a bath and poured it over her head and at the time there was a screen between her and us.
Points to notice:
- ‘Aisha (RA) was behind a screen the whole time so she never uncovered herself even in front her brother.
- 1 Sa’ = 5 liters (app.)
Can you imagine? Prophet (SAW) used THAT less amount of water to take a bath. Ref: Hadith no. 200.
We could try it too, no?
