As salaamu alay kumm,
Today morning received this email regarding the Squatty Potty revolution, and while reading it I was like, Alhamdulillah! The west is waking up to this now but our blessed Prophet, Prophet Muhammad [Peace be upon him] already taught us this more than a 1400 years ago!
To squat to eliminate is sunnah!
Why squat to eliminate?
1. Squatty Potty Toilet Stool Improves Anorectal Angle:
• Reduced straining and decreased pressure in the anal and rectal veins.
• Easier elimination and efficiency – complete emptying of the bowel.
Remember to practice upon this with the intention of practicing upon a Sunnah of the Beloved Prophet [peace be upon him] and not for the benefits, those are just extra accessories.
