Assalamu’alaikum Muft Sahb,
A woman is very distressed and upset at the fact that she is unable to perform istinjaa’ (for number two) thoroughly. She uses toilet paper to wipe the anus three times first, and then uses a whole water jug to clean herself. Yet, later, she will see that there is still some faecal traces on her undergarment.
Although this does not happen all the time, the fact that it does happen stresses and upsets her very much because she feels that she will not be included amongst the ‘Al-Mutotahharoon’.
What can she do about this problem? Is there a certain method in performing istinjaa that she can adopt to ensure that no faecal traces will remain on her undergarment anymore? Will Allah take her to task since she has not performed istinjaa properly?
Jazakallahu khaira. Wassalam.
