48. In al-Faqih: When the Noble Prophet XE "Holy Prophet"  9 wanted to enter the washroom he said:

أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الرِّجْسِ النَّجِسِ الْخَبِيثِ الْمُخْبَثِ الشَّيْطَانِ، أَللّٰهُمَّ أَمْطِ عَنِّي الأَذى وَأَعِذْنِي مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ.

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! I seek refuge with You from the filth of the impurity of the evil of the reviled Shaitan. O All¡h! Pull away from me all uncleanliness and protect me from the accursed Shaitan.

And when he sat to relieve himself he said:

أَللّٰهُمَّ أَذْهِبْ عَنِّي الْقَذى وَالأَذى، وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ.

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! Remove from me the filth and impurity and make me from among the ones who purify themselves.

When he became affected with a looseness of bowels he said:

أَللّٰهُمَّ كَمَا أَطْعَمْتَنِيهِ طَيِّبًا فِي عَافِيَةٍ فَأَخْرِجْهُ مِنِّي خَبِيـثًا فِي عَافِيَةٍ.

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! Just as You have fed me with its goodness in well-being, then take its filth out of me in well-being.

And when he 9 entered the toilet he would say:

أَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ الْحَافِظِ الْمُؤَدِّي.

Praise be to All¡h XE "All¡h" , The Protector and The Fulfiller (of needs).

When he came out (from the toilet) he passed his hand over his stomach and said:

أَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ الَّذِي أَخْرَجَ عَنِّي أَذَاهُ، وَأَبْقى فِيَّ قُوَّتَهُ، فَيَالَهَا مِنْ نِعْمَةٍ لاَ يُقَدِّرُ الْقَادِرُونَ قَدْرَهَا.

Praise be to All¡h XE "All¡h" , the One who removed from me its filth and left in me its strength. What a (great) blessing it is – the real value of which cannot be fully appreciated by anyone.[i]


[i] al-Faqih 1:23 and 25
