Defecating / Urinating While Facing Or Giving Back To Qiblah
My question is that there is a Hadith that is quoted
Sahih al-Bukhari 394
Narrated Abu Aiyub Al-Ansari:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “While defecting, neither face nor turn your back to the Qibla but face either east or west.” Abu Aiyub added. “When we arrived in Sham we came across some lavatories facing the Qibla; therefore we turned ourselves while using them and asked for God’s forgiveness.”
Wherever i read this Hadith it was quoted by Hazrat Abu Ayub Ansari. So I guess it is only one tradition narrated, where prophet prohibits urination and defecation facing the qibla.
So i wanted to know that since this prohibition comes to us through Hadith, in what context was it said? And would it be a sin if a person does the thing mentioned above? And also i have some further questions which i would like to ask as you this thread continues
