From Vile Manners: Passing Gas in Public

From Vile Manners: Passing Gas in Public

Allaah the Mighty and Majestic says: 

وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مَا سَبَقَكُمْ بِهَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنَ الْعَالَمِينَ أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ وَتَقْطَعُونَ السَّبِيلَ وَتَأْتُونَ فِي نَادِيكُمُ الْمُنْكَرَ
“And remember when Loot said to his people: ‘Indeed you bring a lewd act which none from the ‘Aalameen has preceded you in. You come to men (for sex) instead of women and you rob the wayfarer and you practice Munkar (vileness) in your gatherings.’” (Al-‘Ankaboot 29:28-29)

On the authority of Yazeed ibn Bakr Al-Laythee who said: “Al-Qaasim ibn Muhammad was asked about the statement of Allaah: ‘…and you practice Munkar in your gatherings.’ ‘What was that Munkar?’ He said: ‘They used to mutually pass gas in gatherings; one of them passing gas over the other. And the word: النادي means the gathering.”[1]

Al-Bukhaaree[2] and Muslim[3] narrated on the authority of ‘Abdullaah ibn Zam’ah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet admonished them for laughing at flatulence. He said:
لم يضحك أحدكم مما يفعل؟
“Why would one of you laugh at that which he himself does?”

An-Nawawee (may Allaah have mercy upon him) said: “In it (the Hadeeth) is the prohibition of laughing at flatulence one hears from another. Rather, it is proper that one should not pay any attention to it and continue in his speech and that which was occupying him without turning one’s head or other than it; and be as if he had not heard it. In it as well is good etiquettes and manners of association.”
