Rules of Takhalli

60. It is obligatory to conceal one’s private part in the toilet and at all times from adult persons even if they are one’s near relatives (like mother, sister etc.). Similarly, it is obligatory to conceal one’s private parts from insane persons, and from children who can discern between good and evil. However, husband and wife are exempted form this obligation.

62. While using the toilet for relieving oneself, the front or the back part of one’s body should not face the Holy Ka’bah.

63. If a person sits in the toilet with the front part of his body or the back facing the Qibla, but turns the private parts away form that direction, it will not be enough. Similarly, when the front part of the body or the back does not face Qibla, as a precaution, he should not allow the private parts to face that direction.

64. Recommended precaution is that one should not face the Qibla or have one’s back towards it at the time of Istibra (to be explained later), nor at the time of washing oneself to become Pak after relief.

65. When one is forced to sit facing the Qibla, or with his back towards it, so as to avoid somebody looking at him, or if it is not possible to do so, or when there is an unavoidable excuse for sitting that way, it is permissible to do so.

66. It is obligatory precaution that even a child should not be made to sit in the toilet with its face or back facing Qibla. But if the child positions itself that way, it is not obligatory to divert it.

67. It is Haraam to relieve oneself at the following four places:

First, in blind alleys, without the permission of the people who live there;

Second, on the property of a person who has not granted permission for the purpose;

Third, at a place which is Waqf exclusively for its beneficiaries, like some Madrassahs.

Fourth, on the graves of Muslims whose sanctity will thus be violated.

68. The urinary organ can only be made Pak with water. It is enough to wash the organ once, after the removal of essential Nejasat. But, the recommended precaution is to wash it twice. For those who urinate from unnatural ways, it is necessary to wash twice, especially if removal of essential Nejasat is made out of unusual ways

69. If the anus is washed with water, one should ensure that no trace of faeces is left on it.

70. if anus is made Pak,using stone,clod and the like, although being Pak is rather doubtful, but it permissible for the purpose of prayer.

71.it is not necessary to use three stones or three pieces of cloth to make anus Pak , and it will be enough to use different sides of the same stone or cloth;but anyway it should not be less than three times. if anus is make Pak using bones or dung,or things which are sacred like a paper on which the names of Allah is written on it,one cannot perform prayer.

72.In thefollowing three cases, anus can be made Pak with water alone:

First,if another Nejasat, like blood appears along with the faeces;

Second, if an external Nejasat reaches the anus;

Third, if more than usual Nejasat spreads around the anus.

In the cases other than mentioned above , anus can be make Pak either by water or by using cloth or stone as wil be mentioned later ,although it is always better to wash if with water.

73.If a person doubts wether he has made the outlet Pak,it is necessary that he should make it Pak even if he may have been doing it always as a matter of habit.

74.When a person doubts after Namaz , wether he made the outlet Pak befor he started the prayers,the Namaz already prayed will be valid;but for the ensuing prayers ,he will make himself Pak.
