In general guidelines for how to take a big bath, maybe the use of soap and other details has not been explained. So, the caretaker of the Al-Bahjah Islamic Boarding School, Buya Yahya, explained the matter of how to take a big bath with soap.

The big bath or junub bath is a bath that aims to remove or purify oneself from large impurities in the body. Muslims are required to perform junub bath in several conditions such as releasing sperm, having intercourse between husband and wife, after menstruation, and stopping postpartum bleeding.

It is obligatory for Muslims to take a big bath as stated in Al-Quran Surat An-Nisa verse 43 which reads, “O you who believe, do not pray while you are drunk, until you understand what you are saying, [jangan pula hampiri masjid] while you are in a state of junub, unless you just pass by, until you bathe.” (QS. An-Nisa: 43)

Is it okay to take a big shower using soapy water? According to Buya Yahya’s explanation, this should not be done.

Reporting from Al-Bahjah TV’s YouTube channel which was uploaded on October 24, 2019 with the title “Is It Legal to Use Shampoo When Taking a Junub Bath?”, Buya Yahya explained the rules for mandatory bathing or junub bathing.

“Bathing is junub if the water is mixed with shampoo it is not legal,” said Buya Yahya.

According to him, this is because shampoo can damage water quality. Buya Yahya explained that bathing using shampoo and soap is permissible if it is done after taking a jubub bath.

“The junub shower is after or before using shampoo,” added Buya Yahya in the video.

Buya Yahya emphasized that the most important junub bath is water flowing all over the body. In contrast to using shampoo and soap, it functions to clean the body after doing a junub bath which purifies from large hadas.

So the correct way to take a big bath using soap is to do the junub bath or the obligatory bath first, then after that you usually take a shower using soap, or even before.
