Constipation problem

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I suffer from mild constipation. When I pass stool, not all of it comes out. Every time I wipe with a tissue there is always a stain on the tissue. Even after washing with water. When I wipe the area with the tissue there is still a stain. To counter this, on passing stool I would wipe and then I would not wash it. I would then walk around for a bit so the toilet stays inside but still there would still be a stain when wiping. What should I do in this situation?


A: This is sufficient. You may just keep a tissue in the area and thereafter you may throw the tissue and wash once again.

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