SINGLE BATH FOR MULTIPLE COITUS
Unlike ablution, the bath need not be repeated after each act of intercourse. Anas reports that �the Messenger of Allah used to have sexual intercourse with his wives with a single bath� (606); or in the colorful language of TirmizI: �with one bath, the Apostle walked over all his women� (vol. I, hadIs 124). The translator explains: �The holy prophet did not take a bath after every intercourse; he simply performed ablution and took a bath at the end� (note 514).
