Bath After Sex According to Islam

Bath After Sex According to Islam ~ Sex in Islam is one of the things that causes a Muslim to have a big hadas. Big Hadas is a condition that causes a Muslim not to perform worship that requires them to be in a holy condition when doing it, such as praying, reading holding the Quran, Tawaf, and so on. Therefore, if a Muslim has had sex, then he is required to clean the big hadas.

In Islam, the great hadas that exists in a Muslim can be removed by bathing in Janabah. That’s why the Janabah bath is one of the important rituals in Islam that a Muslim must do if they have a big hadas. In general, Muslims understand the Janabah bath as “bath after sex according to Islam”. That’s right. But the meaning of the Janabah bath is not only that. In general, we can understand the Janabah bath as a bath to remove major hadas.

In this article, I will explain some important things about “bath after sex according to Islam”. Some of the important things I mean are as follows:

The first important thing about “bath after sex according to Islam” that I will explain now is “what is bath after sex according to Islam specifically?”. I want you to understand that because that is one of the basic things about this discussion that must be understood very well.

In the previous few paragraphs, I have explained that bathing after sex according to Islam is a Janabah bath. The goal is to remove the big hadas. In Islam, hadas (big hadas and small hadas) is one of the things that causes a Muslim not to perform some of his obligations, such as prayer. That’s why hadas must be removed.

In Islamic teachings, major hadas can only be removed or purified by Janabah bath. If a Muslim who has major hadas has performed a bath (Janabah bath or bath after sex), then he is allowed to do some things that he should do in a holy condition, such as praying, and reading the Quran. For this reason, Janabah bath or bath after sex according to Islam is obligatory for Muslims who have had sex or who have major hadas.

So, if you ask me, “what is bath after sex according to Islam specifically?”, then, the answer is that it is a bath that must be done by Muslims who have had sex to remove the big hadas.

That is the general explanation of bath after sex according to Islam or Janabah bath. As Muslims, we must know that.

How to Bath After Sex According to Islam?

The second important point about “bath after sex according to Islam” which I will explain now is “how to bath after sex according to Islam?”. I want you to understand that so you know what you have to do if you want to take a bath after sex or take a Janabah bath.

In general, bath after sex according to Islam must be done by washing the whole body, from the hair to the soles of the feet. All skin of the body must be watered. One other thing that should not be forgotten before a Muslim takes a bath after sex or Janabah bath is reading the prayer. I will explain that at the end of the discussion.

We can find an explanation that all the skin of the body must be watered when bath after sex or Janabah bath in the following hadiths:

عَنْ عَلِيٍّ بْنِ أَبِيْ طَالِبٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : مَنْ تَرَكَ مَوْضِعَ شَعْرَةٍ مِنْ جَنَابَةٍ فُعِلَ بِهَا كَذَا وَكَذَا فِيْ النَّارِ

From Ali ibn Abi Talib radliyallaahu anhu, “Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Whoever has got the place of hair from janabah, then he will use this and like this in Hell.”

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا قَالَتْ : كَانَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذَا اغْتَسَلَ مِنَ الْجَنَابَةِ يَبْدَأُ فَيَغْسِلَ يَدَيْهِ ثُمَّ يَفْرُغُ بِيَمِيْنِهِ عَلَى شِمَالِهِ فَيَغْسِلَ فَرْجَهُ ، ثُمَّ يَتَوَضَّأُ ، ثُمَّ يَأْخُذُ الْمَاءَ فَيُدْخِلُ أَصَابِعَهُ فِيْ أُصُوْلِ الشَّعْرِ ، ثُمَّ حَفَنَ عَلَى رَأْسِهَ ثَلَاثَ حَفَنَاتٍ ، ثُمَّ أَفَاضَ عَلَى سَائِرِ جَسَدِهِ ثُمَّ غَسَلَ رِجْلَيْهِ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Aisha radliallahu anha, she said, “if the Messenger of Allah sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam bathes from the janaba, then he begins by washing his hands, then he takes precedence to wash his right hand from the left body then he washed his anus. Then he graduated. Then he took water and put his fingers into the base of the hair. Then he poured three hands of water three times. Then he drained water over all his bodies. Then he washed his hands. “The hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِنَّ تَحْتَ كُلِّ شَعْرَةٍ جَنَابَةً ، فَاغْسِلُوْا الشَّعْرَ ، وَانْقُوْا الْبَشَرَةَ . رَوَاهُ أَبُوْ دَاوُدَ وَالتِّرْمِذِيُّ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallaahu anhu, he said, “Allah’s Messenger sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam has said, “Indeed, under every hair there is a janabah. Wash your hair and clean the skin!” The hadith is narrated by Abu Daud and at-Tirmidhi.

In general, we can do bath after sex according to Islam as explained in the second hadith. But, specifically, as explained in Islamic literature, there are some important things that a Muslim who is about to take a bath after sex should do:

  • He must make sure that the water he uses for bathing is holy water that can purify the body.
  • He has to say a prayer to shower after sex.
  • He must run water over all the skin on his body, from the head to the soles of the feet, touched by the water. Water must flow into all the pores of the skin of his body.

That’s a brief explanation of “how to bath after sex according to Islam?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.

Obligatory Dua Before Bath After Sex According to Islam

The third important point about “bath after sex according to Islam” which I will explain now is obligatory dua before bath after sex according to Islam. I want you to understand that because it is one of the obligatory things in bath after sex or the Janabah bath. In fact, you have to memorize the Dua.

In Islamic legal literature, the obligatory Dua before bath after sex according to Islam or before Janabah bath is understood as “Niyyah”. That’s the difference between bath after sex or Janabah bath and regular bath.

In general, in the Dua for bath after sex (bath Janabah) there must be a niyyah explanation for doing it, and that the aim is to remove the major hadas due to sex. A Muslim who is about to perform the Janabah bath must be aware that it is an obligation that must be done for the sake of Allah Taala, not for anything else.

An example of Dua for bath after sex according to Islam is as follows:

نَوَيْتُ الْغُسْلَ لِرَفْعِ الْحَدَثِ الْأَكْبَرِ فَرْضًا لِلَّهِ تَعَالَى

I intend to take a bath to get rid of the big hadas, as an obligation, because of Allah Taala.

That’s a brief explanation of obligatory Dua before bath after sex according to Islam. As Muslims, we must understand that.

That’s a brief explanation of bath after sex according to Islam or Janabah bath. Hope it is useful. Amen.
