  • Stoma bag and praying

    Salaam everyone,

    My father had an operation in 2008 and had his large bowel removed and since then he has had a stoma bag. Before his operation he used to pray his salahs 5 times a day and used to spend most of his time in the mosque praying.

    since the operation he has stopped praying, when asked why, he said it was because he is always continuously cleaning it and that he won't have wudu most of the time as stool will be passing into the stoma bag.
    I want him with the help of Allah swt to pray again as he is always depressed and our house enivironment doesn't help either. I also insha'Allah want to take him to Hajj next year so I would like to know if he would be abe to pray and perform hajj with a stoma bag and how it all works. As I want to explain all this to him to motivate him to pray again. Insha'Allah.

    Jazakallah khair for reading.
    :)

      theres a thread on islamicboard about the same problem.

      There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.

        i believe the opinion of the maliki madhab is that you continue praying even if najasa is running down your legs (in the case of illness i do believe). ghazzali can elaborate i suppose.

          Just wanted to bump this up as it's one of the links that came up when I googled ostomy and Muslims :) might help someone else inshaAllah.
          We need much more awareness about this issue within the Muslim communities so it's not stigmatised or seen as a taboo.

          Anyway.. A few questions have been answered here about an ileostomy: http://www.fiqhcouncilbirmingham.com/page/question/85

            Here are some guidelines for Muslims with Stoma. I hope you will find it useful. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3437123/

              Walaykum salam,

              I can understand how your dad feels. I don't have a stoma bag but due to other ill health issues, I haven't been able to maintain proper ghusl and wudhu on most days and we have it so drummed into us from early on that you have to be pristine clean before salah that I went from praying five times a day before the illness, to stopping salah altogether for about four years. It took me a long time to overcome those feelings that the salah was inadequate without a full bath which I was unable to do for weeks at a time but once I got past all that and started a routine of more tayammum, it became easier to pray everyday even if it wasn't regular and then over time increased it to being more regular. Still got some way to go but it's better than back when I couldn't do it at all.

              The deen was made easy for us but we make it harder for ourselves... just like those people who are severely ill but still insist on fasting and pushing their limits which is so unnecessary.
