Dribbling urine after urinating
Fatwa No: 92359


Salaam I was wondering if you could help me with a few problems. I currently suffer from a urinary problem - I tend to dribble urine after urinating (not major urinary incontinence) & leak very slightly intermittently (on & off - no detectable pattern) all the time - but not streaming urine or anything on that scale just very slight leakage. I have discovered because of this problem I have to clean my private part & re-new wudhu when the prayer time begins for every prayer and also put something there to stop contamination of clothes etc. My problem is that I have tried putting tissue paper there to stop contamination but it is very difficult as it moves out of place & thereby I possibly become contaminated by the very slight leakage, so now I put a very small piece of tissue there & put tape over it to stop it moving & stop any chance of contamination. However this leads to a few problems - 1)it is very time consuming, taking no less than 20 mins approx & 2) the tape is slightly damaging in the sense of it damaging the skin & could be harmful in the long run possibly. So I was wondering if you could advise on the issue due to your knowledge . Also, sorry for taking up your time - forgive me - whilst I have access to tissue/tape etc. here where I currently am - I intend to travel abroad in the not so far future & was wondering what I would do there with my problem - not having access to tissue etc. as they are rural remote villages? Also this problem leads me to waste vast amounts of water eg. when I have a bath I think that as I leak slightly that when water pours down my penis that urine goes along with it & contaminates the rest of the body where water goes - thereby consuming lots of water, also as when I leave the bath water drips from the private part onto legs etc.- as it naturally would after bathing -but then I get insinuations that this has made my legs etc. impure thereby I end up bathing again. Sorry for long question but it is stressing me out. Jzk
