GHUSIL, TAHARA AND TAYAMMUM

God commanded Prophet Muhammad in 7th century to establish the Salat (Following closely) at specific times (Fajir & Isha) 17:78, 11:114 in order to remember God by reading the message of God.

Believers were commanded to perform Ghusil, Tahara and Tayammum 5:6, 4:43 when attending the Salat (Following closely) held by Prophet Muhammad. It was a basic command to freshen up the believers before understanding the message recited by Prophet Muhammad in the Salat.

The word Wudu came from the man made Hadiths and it is nowhere found in the Quran. Also nowhere in the Quran Allah commanded the believers to wash the body parts 3 times.

WRONG WAY TO PERFORM THE GHUSIL AND TAHARA ACCORDING TO HADITHS:

1. Wash hands 3 times

2. Use left hand to wash right hand, up to and including the wrist, 3 times.

3. Then, use right hand to wash left hand, up to and including the wrist, 3 times.

4. Rinse water in mouth 3 times

5. Cup right hand with water and put in mouth, then spit it out, 3 times.

6. Snuff water in nose 3 times

7. Wash face 3 times

8. Wash forearms 3 times

9. Wipe right forearm with left hand, all the way up to and including the elbow, 3 times.

10. Wipe left forearm with right hand, all the way up to and including the elbow, 3 times.

11. Use left hand to wash right feet, up to ankle, 3 times.

12. Use Right hand to wash left feet, up to ankle, 3 times.

RIGHT WAY TO PERFORM THE GHUSIL AND TAHARA ACCORDING TO THE QURAN:

1. Washing the face and

2. Hands up to elbows; and

3. Wiping a part of the head and

4. feet.

TAYAMMUM WITH CLEAN SAND IF YOU CAN’T FIND WATER

1 – With clean sand wipe your face
2 – Wipe your hands

WHAT BREAKS YOUR CLEANLINESS 

If you are in an unclean state
If you are sick
If you are on a journey
If you have used a toilet
If you had sex with your spouse

GHUSIL, TAHARA AND TAYAMMUM VERSE 5:6 & 4:43

5:6 O you who believe, if you rise to establish the following closely (Salat),

then wash (Fa-Igsilu) your faces and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankles;

And if you have seminal emission/discharge (Junuban), then you shall bathe (Fa-Ittahharu).

And if you are ill,

or traveling,

or one of you comes from Lavatory,

or you had sexually contacted (Lamastumu) the women (Nisaa),

and you cannot not find water, then you shall accomplish/fulfill it with (Fa-Tayammamu) the clean sand then you shall wipe (Fa-Imsahu) your faces and your hands with it.

God does not want to place any hardship on you, but He wants to cleanse you (Li-Yutahhira+kum) and to complete His blessings upon you that you may be thankful.

————————————————————-

4:43 O you who believe, do not approach the following closely (Salat) while you are drunk, until you know what you are saying (in Salat).

And not if you have seminal emission/discharge (Junuban) (then) until you bathe (Taghtasilu), except you (want to) take lesson in a way.

And if you are ill,

or traveling,

or one of you comes from the Lavatory,

or you had sexually contacted (Lamastumu) the women (Nisaa),

and could not find water, then you shall accomplish/fulfill it with (Fa-Tayammamu) the clean sand; you shall wipe (Fa-Imsahu) your faces and hands.

God is Pardoning, Forgiving.

SUMMARY

1-If you are already clean then wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankles.

2- If you had a seminal discharge then take a bath.

3- If you are ill or traveling or used a lavatory or had sexual contact with women and have no water then with clean sand wipe your faces and hands with it.

Note: If you are passing by the place of Salat and not participating in it but just want to take lesson then taking bath is not necessary if you are in a state of seminal discharge.
