Hanging out in the bathroom unnecessarily

Hanging out in the bathroom unnecessarily

بـِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْم

For those who enjoy reading the newspapers, magazines, phones or tablets as they relieve themselves in the bathroom – consider the statement of Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah may Allah have mercy upon him.

He said: Do not remain there for a long time unnecessarily. Remaining there without a need is hated because it is the place where the devils assemble and the private areas are exposed. It has been narrated from Luqman the wise that he said: Siting for lengthy amounts of time to relieve oneself causes the kidney to bleed and it causes hemorrhoids.
