Lesson 19: Book of Purification from Umdatul-Ahkam – Uwais at-Taweel
Explanation of Hadeeths #27 of the Book of Purification (#5 of the Chapter of Things that Invalidate Wudoo’):
Narrated Anas ibn Mālik: A Bedouin came and urinated in a part of the Masjid and so the people (Companions) rebuked him. The Prophet ﷺ stopped them; and when he (the Bedouin) had finished urinating, the Prophet ﷺ commanded the Companions to bring a vessel of water to pour over the area (where the Bedouin had urinated).
Some issues discussed:
- The impurity of urine and how it should be washed off
- The gentleness and exemplary manners of the Messenger ﷺ
- A religious principle derived from the hadeeth: When forced to choose between 2 or more evils, one chooses the one with least harm.
The class was held on Saturday, 10th of Jumudā al-Akhirah, 1442 (January 23rd 2021).
