Hadith

Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad [s] said:

It is narrated by Abu Hurayrah [r] that the Holy Prophet [s] would wash with water after relieving himself.

“None of you should wash himself with his right hand when in the toilet.”

Salman [r] relates, “(The Prophet) has forbidden us to face Qiblah at the time of passing stool and urine, or cleansing with the right hand, or wiping with less than three pebbles, or with dung or a piece of bone.”

Anas [r] relates that the Holy Prophet [s] used to make off his ring which has ‘Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah’ engraved on it, while relieving himself.
