One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

As-salaam walekum, Dear brother Burhan,

 

First of all this site is really very informative and helpful.I have one problem from the last 10 or 15 years because of which i dont feel like to pray or recite quran on regular basis, although i feel much to do so from inside.My problem is that after urinating some drops of urine comes after 5 or 10 mins as i come out of the washroom.Even if i spend half an hour in washroom so that all droplets come out but still it comes after 5 or 10 mins as i come out of the washroom.How can i pray in this situation when i know there are some drops of urine are in my underwear ? from inside i feel i am na-paak.I have not consulted any docotr because its a sensitive part of the body and if by chance some treatment or medicine goes wrong than it will be big problem or may be it can affect my manlyhood.What do i do shall i see any doctor or u`ll recommend me any measure to overcome this problem ?

Answer:

 

Urine drop

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Respected Brother, the organ of the men, whereby the urine is discharged has a long tube, therefore it is possible that even after one has washed his private area clean after relieving himself; a few drops may remain in the tube which may drop after one gets up or moves. If one is absolutely convinced that some urine drops have fallen after he has cleansed himself, he should wash his private parts and the area of the clothes the urine drops might have touched, do the wudu again and perform the prayers. There is absolutely no need to do the full ghusl.

 

But if one only has a doubt, or constantly doubts whether some drops might have fallen or not, then one should not let the doubt bother him. In Islam, the determination of impurity is not on doubts; but rather on belief and absolute conviction. Everything will be considered pure, unless one has absolute conviction that an impurity has touched it. If you have only a doubt that urine drops might have leaked, then you should not act on these doubts; but rather act only if you are absolutely convinced that an impurity has touched you or your clothes.

 

If you are absolutely convinced that a few drops of urine have been discharged, you must wash your private parts and the area of the clothes where the drops might have touched, do the wudu, and make yourself available for prayers.

 

Reported Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) , I used to have a great deal of prostatic fluid flowing, so I asked a man to ask the Prophet (saws) about it (as I was shy to ask him, due to my relationship with him through his daughter). He asked him and the Prophet (saws), said, "Make ablution and wash your penis."

Al-Athram narrated, "I was bothered by a great deal of madhi (prostatic fluid), so I went to the Prophet (saws), and informed him of this. He (saws) said 'It is sufficient for you to take a handful of water and sprinkle it over (the madhi)."'

 

Beloved brother in Islam, if you have a genuine medical problem with your bladder, then Shariah allows that everytime before the prayer wash your private parts, do the wudu and make yourself available for the prayer. If after the wudu, you still feel or doubt that a few drops of urine might have leaked, then take a handful of water and sprinkle it over the private area and perform the prayer without the least bit of hesitation. But under no circumstances is a believer allowed to forgo or abstain from his obligatory prayers. The All-Knowing, All-Merciful Lord knows the condition of each of His slaves and it is expected that He will accept your piety and your prayers.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
