Volume 001 :: Book 005 (Bathing (Ghusl)) :: Hadith 278
Narrated By Um Hani bint Abi Talib :
I went to Allah’s Apostle in the year of the conquest of Mecca and found him taking a bath while Fatima was screening him. The Prophet asked, “Who is it?” I replied, “I am Um-Hani.”
Volume 001 :: Book 005 (Bathing (Ghusl)) :: Hadith 279
Narrated By Maimuna :
I screened the Prophet while he was taking a bath of Janaba. He washed his hands, poured water from his right hand over his left and washed his private parts. Then he rubbed his hand over a wall or the earth, and performed ablution similar to that for the prayer but did not wash his feet. Then he poured water over his body, shifted from that place, and washed his feet.
