Q: I always have problems with cleanliness when leaving the toilet because I am in a rush. How can I rectify this?

A:. The answer is simply – do not rush! Cleanliness (Tahaarah) holds a very important position in the life of a Muslim. Salaah will not be valid without proper cleanliness. By being neglectful in matters of cleanliness, one is placing Salaah, etc. in jeopardy. By way of example, the Hadeeth is very explicit and stern with regard to splashes of urine on the body and clothes and warns of punishment in the grave for one who is negligent in this.

Spend so much time in the toilet which is needed to attain proper cleanliness.
