Q: I would be grateful if Your Eminence could give me the ruling on a confusing point.
Does a person suffering from hemorrhoids, may Allah safeguard you, have to perform Ghusl (full ritual bath)
whenever blood comes out of them? Please note that blood flows out in large quantities, but at wide intervals.
A person suffering from bleeding hemorrhoids has to make Istinja' (cleansing the private parts with water after urination or defecation) and wash the parts of their body and clothing that are stained with blood and then perform Wudu' (ablution) to offer Salah (Prayer). They do not need to perform Ghusl, because this is not a major ritual impurity.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
