Digital Rectal Examination (DRE)

Q: Does having a digital rectal exam break one’s wudhu?

I would also like to know is it the same hukm for male and female, and would it be permissible for a male doctor or a non muslim female doctor to do this on a muslim female.

A digital rectal examination (or exam) is used to see if you might have a prostate problem or prostate cancer. It involves your doctor or nurse feeling your prostate through the wall of the back passage (rectum).
The doctor or nurse will ask you to lie on your side on an examination table, with your knees brought up towards your chest. They will slide a finger gently into your back passage. They’ll wear gloves and put some gel on their finger to make it more comfortable.


The confounded “rectal exam” will nullify wudhu as well as the fast.

It is not permissible for a woman to submit to such an immoral
examination by a male doctor. If such an exam is imperative, then she
must find a female physician. There are many non-Muslim female
doctors available.


While the world is in a state of extreme turmoil and chaos under the aegis of the satansim of the bogus pandemic, true Muslims must understand and remember that Allah Ta’ala declares in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“Not a leaf drops (from a tree) but He is aware. There is neither a seed in the darkness of the earth nor anything moist or dry, but it is recorded in a Clear Kitaab.”
“Nothing – not an atom – in either the sky or the earth, nor anything smaller or bigger, is hidden from your Rabb, but it is recorded in a Clear Kitaab.”
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that if entire mankind unites to harm you or benefit you, they will succeed only to the extend decreed by Allah Ta’ala. Thus, keep in mind, that the calamity will run its prescribed course ordained for it by Allah Ta’ala. No one and nothing can thwart or foil its onward progress in its trajectory.
What we are observing and suffering today is a small taste of Allah’s punishment for our massive sins, transgression, fisq, fujoor, bid’ah, nifaaq and kufr. The greater Athaab is yet to unfold. From what is being seen today emerging from the ranks of so-called ‘ulama’ (all munaafiqeen), it is clear that today’s little Athaab is a prelude for something greater. No one is heeding and taking lesson. These rubbish, scoundrel molvis and sheikhs are increasingly licking the boots and even the hinds of the atheists who are teaching them to transform Islam into a new religion but retaining the name, ‘islam’.
Every true Muslim must incumbently focus on Allah Ta’ala. Hold firmly on to the Rope of Allah (The Shariah). Reflect much on Maut, the Qabar and Aakhirah, and know that Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed:
“No one will die except at the appointed time with the Command of Allah.”
The plethora of fong kong shaitaani rules, regulations and measures will not save you from Maut or from whatever calamity Allah Ta’ala has ordained for you.
Therefore, do not fear satanism. Do not fear the inspirations of Iblees which these munaafiq molvis and sheikhs are presenting as if these devilish incantations are the Holy Writ. Every mediocre Muslim knows what Islam is and what the Shariah of the Qur’aan and Sunnah is. You need not seek exposition and clarification from those who practise fong kong prayer rituals in the mosques which they have converted into temples of shaitaan. These acts of satanism are unheard of. They are signs of Qiyaamah.
Do not join fong kong mock congregations. Perform Salaat elsewhere, even alone at home. Maut is stalking us all. The current suffering is a great reminder of Maut and a medium for gaining Divine Proximity. Increase in permanent Thikrullaah, Istighfaar in abundance, Durood Shareef and Kalimah Tayyibah. Be with Wudhu at all times so that you gain Shahaadat when Maut arrives. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) aid: “Wudhu is the weapon of the Mu’min.”
Do not be too much concerned with wazeefas for cure. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that Surah Faatihah is a cure for every sickness. Therefore, recite it in abundance; blow on water and drink, and blow on yourself and your patients. Fall asleep with Allah’s Name on your lips. Do not lose courage. Accept whatever Allah Ta’ala has decreed. Regarding these flues, recite: ‘LAA Ba’sa tahoorun, Inshaa-Allah.’ – seven times every now and again. This is Rasulullah’s prescription. The flu purifies us from our sins.
May Allah Ta’ala keep us all firm on the Deen and take us from this dunya with our Imaan intact. AAMEEN THUMMA AAMEEN! YA RABBAL AALAMEEN. We are from YOU, and we are returning unto YOU.

Allaamah Abdul Wahhaab Sha’raani (rahmatullah alayhi) said: “Everything on which the Name of Allah is not taken is like maitah (carrion). This applies also when making wudhu. When the Name of Allah is taken on using water, life is acquired. Whilst the water purifies the external surface of the body, the Name of Allah purifies the soul. On the contrary, the one who neglects Tasmiyah, his heart is either dead or diseased. (It is like carrion.)

The people say that wudhu is valid even if Tasmiyah is omitted. However, they do not understand the spiritual dimension. O my Brother! Be observant of this. It is Mustahab to repeat the wudhu if Tasmiyah was not recited.

The importance of Tasmiyah is amply conveyed in the Hadith: “There is no wudhu for the one who does not recite the Name of Allah.” According to Hadhrat Hasan, Nakh’i Ishaaq Ibn Raahwiyah and the Ahlus Zaahir, Tasmiyah is Waajib in wudhu. If it is intentionally omitted, wudhu should be repeated (compulsorily according to these authorities).
For practical purposes, forget about the Fiqhi technicalities of the Math-habs on this issue. Just give practical implementation to the Naseehat of Allaamah Sha’raani (Rahmatullah alayh) – Naseehat which is that of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Do not deprive yourself of the wonderful virtues of Tasmiyah mentioned by Allaamah Sha’raani (Rahmatullah alayh).

Once Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) offered the following naseehat to Hadhrat Anas Bin Maalik (radhiyallahu anhu):
“O Anas! Make a proper Wudhu, then there will be barkat in your life and the Recording Angels will love you. Make a thorough ghusl-e-janaabat. Under every hair is impurity.
Sins will then be forgiven.

Perform Salaatul Dhuhaa constantly. This is the special Salaat of repenters. Perform Salaat. Perform Salaat day and night punctually. The Angels will make dua for you. Perform Salaat correctly, for Allah loves such a Salaat.
If you can, always remain with Wudhu. You will then not forget to recite Kalimah Shahaadat at the time of Maut.
When entering the home, greet the inmates of the home (i.e. Say: Assalamu Alaikum). This brings barkat in the home.
Greet every Muslim in the road. This results in sweetness of Imaan. And forgiveness for the sins committed in that road.
Never entertain envy nor harbour malice for any Muslim for even a moment. This is my way. Whoever adopts my way loves me. He will be with me in Jannat. O Anas! If you guard this naseehat of mine and act accordingly, then Maut will become beloved to you. In Maut is hidden peace for you.”
