Top Religious Body Of Turkey Allows Toilet Paper

Toilet PaperThe top religious body of Turkey allows the Muslims to use toilet papers. Fatwa released by Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet) in Turkey states that the toilet paper is permissible in Islam. But it is also included that water should be the first priority of Muslims in order to clean their body. It is also reminded in Fatwa that the Muslims must have to clean their body, clothes and the place where they offer Prayer.


“If water cannot be found for cleansing, other cleaning materials can be used. Even though some sources deem paper to be unsuitable as a cleaning material, as it is an apparatus for writing, there is no problem in using toilet paper,” part of Fatwa released by Directorate of Religious Affairs.

In a separate statement by Diyanet, it is also stated that the begging in Islam is not permissible until and unless the person facing desperate conditions that could resulted in death. However those who acquire begging as a profession to earn money instead of fulfilling their basic needs, are demanding the fire of hell by this act.
