[Benefit] Cleaning the Hands With Soap After Reliving Oneself- Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad

إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ جَرِيرٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، أَنَّ نَبِيَّ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ دَخَلَ الْغَيْضَةَ فَقَضَى حَاجَتَهُ فَأَتَاهُ جَرِيرٌ بِإِدَاوَةٍ مِنْ مَاءٍ فَاسْتَنْجَى مِنْهَا وَمَسَحَ يَدَهُ بِالتُّرَابِ

Ibrahim bin Jarir narrated from his father that :

The Prophet of Allah entered a thicket and relieved himself, then Jarir brought him a small water skin from which he cleansed himself, then he wiped his hand in the dirt.

[Saheeh Ibn Majah no. 293]

Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad hafidhuhallah was asked regarding this Hadith:

Question: Does using soap takes its place?

Answer: ” Yes, as it is well-known it is recommended. It is not a must. Dirt becomes like soap in this time period”.

[Sharh Sunan Ibn Majah no. 38]
