Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would go far away when he needed to relieve himself

Question

Is this Hadith suitable to quote?

“I was with Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) on a journey. He had to relieve himself, so he went far away.”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration and has declared it authentic (hasanun sahih). It is therefore suitable to quote.

Sayyiduna Mughirah ibn Shu’bah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported said: “I was once on a journey with Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). He had to relieve himself so he went far away.”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 20)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
