Bathing in such a way that neither the back nor the private organ faces

Q: My question is regarding ghusl. My bath tub is placed in such a way that if you have a bath, your back will face the qibla. Can you please advise if this is acceptable, and if not then what can be done about it?


A: When bathing, stand in such a way that neither your back nor your private organ face the qiblah. If this is difficult, then bath with a lungi on so that your private organs do not face the qiblah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
