We know that Ghusal is mandatory for every person who has done sexual intercourse, orgasmic discharges "semen" etc...

There is one problem with me. In my home, bath room and toilet room are together so is it okay to perform Ghusal in their?

  • why do you think it is haram. – user4456 Aug 5 '14 at 8:13
  • @Mhmd I have the same question. If there is toilet and bathroom at the same place, then impurity of toilet may come intact to us when water falls from height. Also, I want to ask that, how is it to us same Mug [the small pot to take water] for toilet and bath? – user263210 Aug 5 '14 at 8:20

    @user you seem to have misunderstood the concept of impurity. Unless you are clearly seeing the source of impurity, there is nothing impure about it. The toilet -just being a place for it- doesn't make it impure. – user4456 Aug 5 '14 at 8:26

  • @Murtaza A general Hadith would apply here: "Halal is clear, and Haram is clear, and there are interlocking things in between that a lot of people don't know ". And a question has been asked in the Fatwa center of Islam web here: fatwa.islamweb.net/fatwa/… but it's in Arabic. They provided 3 quotes from scholars as interpretations, but as I said, you can't find a Hadith or Ayah about bathroom etiquette when there wasn't any back then, but rather scholars compare this to other "clear Halal" or "clear Haram" and amend this to that.

  • @Murtaza It's a branch in Fiqh (science of understanding of Islam) called Al-Que'ias "القياس" or the "comparison" in English – Private Aug 5 '14 at 8:58
  • @Murtaza I meant append not amend. – Private Aug 5 '14 at 9:03
  • @Murtaza Sorry the link in Fatwa Center is for something else. But the rest on my comments are correct. – Private Aug 5 '14 at 9:08
