Ghusl after an operation

Taking Ghusl

As Salaamu Alaikum, I recently had an operation where when I urinate blood also comes with it. Do I have to take a ghusl every time?

  1. No!

    Ghusl in not mandatory for you at all since you had operation or sick! Tayammum (dry ablution) is eough for you.

    Read in Quran:

    [4:43] O you who believe, do not observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) while intoxicated, so that you know what you are saying. Nor after sexual orgasm without bathing, unless you are on the road, traveling; if you are ill or traveling, or you had urinary or fecal-related excretion (such as gas), or contacted the women (sexually), and you cannot find water, you shall observe Tayammum (dry ablution) by touching clean dry soil, then wiping your faces and hands therewith. GOD is Pardoner, Forgiver.

  2. Salaams,

    The act of ghusl (full bath) is required when one enters a state of major impurity. For men, major impurity is caused by ejaculation or sexual intercourse with/without ejaculation. For women, it is when she has an orgasm, has sexual intercourse with/without orgasm, gives birth, or has menses.

    No where in these cases is a ghusl required when one has major surgery, or a medical condition where blood leaks with urine.

    However, if you are in a state of minor impurity which requires wudu, you may fulfill the appropriate requirements whether your urine contains blood or not.

    So to answer your question, unless you've had sex or ejaculated (or if you are female, had menses or given birth), you do not need a ghusl at all despite your medical condition.

    And Allah always knows best.
