Your Prophet has taught you Everything, even the Ettiquettes of the Toilet

Beloved One, there was nothing that the Rasūl -salallāhu alayhi wasallam – left unclarified for the Ummah before his departure. He left no stone unturned. There was nothing good except that he guided the Ummah toward it. Likewise there was no evil from which he didn’t warn the Ummah. His Injunctions were complete, his Way of Life was perfect. There remains no need to add or to subtract from it. No extremism and no laxity. It is strict enough and needs no additional strictness from anyone. It is lax enough and needs no further laxity and tolerance from anyone.

Imām At-Tabarī rahimahumllāh narrated in his Tafsīr from Abū Dharr that he said

“The Rasūl -salallāhu alayhi wasallam – left us and there was no bird that flies in the sky except that he had given us knowledge concerning it.”

It’s like was recorded by Imām Ahmad in his Musnad and Ibn Hajar in Al-Matālibu Al-‘Āliyah.

Why then are some Muslims mesmerized by the statements of the Non-Muslims in this era of ours and begin to accommodate taking of their laws and Way of Life, thereby keeping aside the Bounty Allāh has bestowed upon us with the sending of the Rasūl -salallāhu alayhi wasallam.

The completion of the Dīn and it’s perfection was so pronounced that it was known to the Mushrikun living around Madīnah. One of them once said to Salmān Al-Fārisī – radiyallāhu ‘anhu:

“Your Prophet taught you Everything, even the Ettiqquetes (of using) the Toilet”

Salmān Al-Fārisī replied:

“Yes! He forbade us (concerning the Toilet) from facing or backing the Qiblah while passing urine or stools, that we should not cleanse ourselves with our right hands, that we should not use less than three pebbles for cleaning ourselves, and that we should not clean ourselves with animal dung or bones.”

This Hadīth was recorded by Imām Muslim in his Sahīh.

Do we as Muslims think that the Rasūl -salallāhu alayhi wasallam – will give us Injunctions on the matters of the toilet and not give us Injunctions on the Matters of State that affects the lives of everybody and is of the most important matters of society?

Why then should we as Muslims stick very tenaciously to these little matters and abandon the Injunctions of Allāh on the Matters of State?

Questions that a pondering Mind wonders upon…
