When you go to relieve yourself, do not face or turn your back towards the QIBLAH.” Hadrat Abu Hurairah (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) has commanded that three stones be used, he forbade the use of dung and decayed bones, and also forbade the use of right hand for the purpose of ISTINJA.
