The Ruling Of Istinja

The ruling of Istinjaa

 والاستنجاء سنة من نجس يخرج من السبيلين ما لم يتجاوز المخرج

Istinjaa is sunnah when the impurity has left the private part and has not passed the boundary of the passage.  

 وإن تجاوز وكان قدر الدرهم وجب إزالته بالماء وإن زاد على الدرهم افترض

And if the impurity passes the boundary of the passage and is equivalent to the size of a dirham then it is necessary to remove it with water. And if the impurity is more than the size of a dirham then it is compulsory to remove it with water.

ما يفترض عند الاغتسال

That which is compulsory to wash

 ويفترض غسل ما في المخرج عند الاغتسال من الجنابة والحيض والنفاس وإن كان ما في المخرج قليلا

It is compulsory to wash the private part if you are required to have a bath in the case of discharge, menstrual bleeding, post-natal bleeding, even if what leaves the passage is little in quantity. 

سنن الاستنجاء

Sunnah of Istinjaa

 ويسن أن يستنجى بحجر منق ونحوه والغسل بالماء احب

It is sunnah to do Istinjaa with a clean stone or something like it. And washing with water is more liked than just wiping the area.

 والأفضل الجمع بين الماء والحجر فيسمح ثم يغسل

And the most preffered is to combine in washing with water and wiping with a stone, hence you wipe then wash. 

 ويجوز أن يقتصر على الماء أو الحجر والسنة إنقاء المحل

And it is permissible to suffice upon water or wiping with stones only. And the sunnah is to purify the area. 

 والعدد في الأحجار مندوب لا سنة مؤكدة فيستنجي بثلاثة أحجار ندبا إن حصل التنظيف بما دونها

The number if stones which are recommended for use and which are not an emphasised sunnah, is to do istinjaa with three stones even if it the area is cleaned by using less than that.
