“‘Most shocking, Mrs Clinton found in the kitchen under the double sink an empty plastic milk bottle that was extremely dirty and covered in brown fingerprints,’ he said. ‘He filled it with water from the kitchen sink and used it to wash his bottom after toileting. He didn’t use toilet paper for cultural reasons. Mrs Clinton concluded the brown finger prints were faecal matter. He said he needed to remove the faecal matter from his body after using the toilet. So a bottle used for his cleaning his bottom found inside the kitchen where food is prepared.'”
Cultural reasons? More like religious reasons. Islamic reasons (Istinja is cleaning oneself after urinating and defecating):
A hadith has this exchange:
Abdur-Rahman bin Yazid said: “They said to Salman, ‘Your Prophet taught you about everything, even defecating?’ So Salman said, ‘Yes. He prohibited us from facing the Qiblah when defecating and urinating, performing Istinja with the right hand, using less than three stones for Istinja, and using dung or bones for Istinja.'” — Jami` at-Tirmidhi 16
So one must use at least three stones. And regarding water:
Narrated Abu Hurairah that the Prophet said: “This Ayah was revealed about the people of Quba: In it are men who love to purify themselves. And Allah loves those who make themselves pure (9:108).” He said: “They used water to perform Istinja so this Ayah was revealed about them.” — Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3100
So using water for this is praiseworthy. Stones and water. Muhammad didn’t mention toilet paper.
“Chef found with bottle covered in fecal matter in his kitchen banned from running food businesses,” Swindon Advertiser, May 14, 2016:
A CURRY chef who stored an empty milk bottle he used for washing his backside in the kitchen has been banned from running a restaurant.
A senior environmental heath officer felt physically sick when she found Mahbub Chowdhury had the two pint plastic Tesco container stored under the sink.
And when she quizzed him about the container, which had brown finger marks on the outside of it, he said he didn’t use toilet paper ‘for cultural reasons’.
The 46-year-old was the sole trader in the restaurant and takeaway at Yeahya Flavour Of Asia, based in the Nine Elms pub on Old Shaw Lane.
Simon Burns, prosecuting, told Swindon Crown Court that he was already being prosecuted in April last year when council officers checked up on him.
After finding more problems he said environmental health officers Carolyn Clinton and Caroline Lock visited his kitchen again last July.
When they went into the kitchen they were stunned by the standard of cleanliness and his knowledge of allergens: which can kill.
“Most shocking, Mrs Clinton found in the kitchen under the double sink and [sic] empty plastic milk bottle that was extremely dirty and covered in brown fingerprints,” he said.
“He filled it with water from the kitchen sink and used it to wash his bottom after toileting.
“He didn’t use toilet paper for cultural reasons. Mrs Clinton concluded the brown finger prints were faecal matter.
“He said he needed to remove the faecal matter from his body after using the toilet
“So a bottle used for his cleaning his bottom found inside the kitchen where food is prepared.”
Mr Burns sad “It was a plastic milk bottle from Tesco, a two pint receptacle for milk.”
He added “The officer felt, quite frankly, sick at having the handle that.”
When he was later questioned the defendant insisted that he had been misunderstood when they spoke to him and that he always recycled the bottle.
He said that he was the only person working in the restaurant and takeaway, which has now closed down, and it was a very small kitchen….
