Ruling 57

The recommended precaution (al‐iḥtiyāṭ al‐mustaḥabb) is that the front or back of one’s body should not face qibla while performing istibrāʾ8 – the laws (aḥkām) of which will be mentioned later – nor while purifying the urinary outlet and the anus.

8 Istibrāʾ here refers to the process of clearing the male urethra after urinating.
