If A Small Child Urinates In The Tub Whilst Being Given A Bath, Does He Become Najis (impure) As A Result?

I usually give my son who is 18
months old a shower to wash him.
It is an electric shower over the
bath. He often urinates while I am
washing him. Will his body become
impure from the urine that mixes
with the water flowing underneath
his body? Do I have to turn off the
shower, let the water drain away
and then wash his body from the
other side or is it enough to just
keep pouring water from above?


Praise be to Allah.
If a small child urinates whilst being
washed in a bathtub, this urine will
flow into the waste pipe, and the
water coming from the tap will help
the urine to disappear quickly. If we
assume that any part of the
bathtub or the child’s body became
najis (impure) with this urine, then
the water coming from the tap will
pass over it and render it pure.

On our website we received the
following question: Is urinating in
the bathtub when having a shower
included in the hadeeth that forbids
urinating in the place where a
person washes himself or is it not,
because the water is draining out of
the tub?
This question was put to Shaykh
Muhammad ibn Saalih
al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have
mercy on him) who replied as
“No, this is not included in that
hadeeth, because if he urinates, he
can pour water over it and the urine
will be removed, but he should not
start taking his shower until the
urine has been removed by pouring
water over it.
See the answer to question no.
And Allah knows best.
