Istibraa for continuous urine drops

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Most of the times when I come out of the washroom and make sure that no drop f urine remains inside of me and washing many times, I feel the movement of water at my organ. I try not to make sudden movements like running and jumping until the feeling has gone away. I have been told that these are the waswaas of shaytan but my question here is that the feelings I get feel extremely real and I feel like I am certain that something came out. Does this break my certainty that nothing was inside of me or should I cahnge my clothes or wash them. Also since my clothes are wet I feel like my entire clothing is now najis and not just the underwear.

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

After relieving yourself, it is necessary for you to practice istibraa. [i]

Istibraa is taking the appropriate actions to ensure all urine has exited the body. [ii]

The most effective way to of doing Istibraa is to place one’s fingers on the area just below the scrotum and press that area while moving one’s hand upwards. One should continue doing this several times, until all the remaining drops of urine are discharged from the urethra. Different people need to adapt different methods depending on their bodies. 

If you are in the habit of experiencing doubts and you are not certain about the urine drops, then you may sprinkle water around your private parts or underpants and attribute the wetness to the water.

Consider the following hadeeth:

“‏ جَاءَنِي جِبْرِيلُ فَقَالَ يَا مُحَمَّدُ إِذَا تَوَضَّأْتَ فَانْتَضِحْ ‏” 

Prophet () said: ‘‘Jibraeel came to me and said: ‘O Muhammad! When you perform wudhu then sprinkle water over the private part’’

(Sunan-Tirmithy, Kitaabut- Taharah)

Practice on the above prescribed methods, Insha-Allah we hope you will be relieved.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

أما الاستبراء فهو طلب البراءة وهو أن يركض برجله على الأرض حتى يزول عنه

 

مراقي الفلاح شرح نور الإيضاح (ص: 23) 

يلزم الرجل الاستبراء حتى يزول أثر البول ويطمئن قلبه على حسب عادته إما بالمشي أو التنحنح أو الاضطجاع أو غيره ولا يجوز له الشروع في الوضوء حتى يطمئن بزوال رشح البول والاستنجاء سنة

وَيَجِبُ الِاسْتِبْرَاءُ وَالتَّنَحْنُحُ، وَقِيلَ: يَكْفِي بِمَسْحِ الذَّكَرِ وَاجْتِذَابِهِ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ وَالصَّحِيحُ أَنَّ طِبَاعَ النَّاسِ وَعَادَاتِهِمْ مُخْتَلِفَةٌ فَمَنْ غَلَبَهُ أَنَّهُ صَارَ طَاهِرًا جَازَ لَهُ أَنْ يَسْتَنْجِيَ؛ لِأَنَّ كُلَّ أَحَدٍ أَعْلَمُ بِحَالِهِ وَاَللَّهُ – تَعَالَى – أَعْلَمُ
