BATHING IN PUBLIC SHOWERS -Among the Commandments provided to safeguard the honour and purity of women, an important one is for them not to take showers or bath in public showers.
19. ( ) Jabir ( ) narrates that the Prophet ( ) said, “Whosoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment
should not enter a public shower without covering his Satr; and whosoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment should not take his wife into a public shower; and whosoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment should not sit in a place where people are drinking wine.” (Tirmizi, Nasai)
In another Hadith, Ummi Darda ( ) reported that once she met the Prophet ( ) when she was returning after taking a bath in a public shower. He asked me, "O Ummi Darda! Where are you coming from?" I replied, "From the public shower." He said, "I swear by the One who has my life in His Hand, any woman who takes off her clothes anywhere else but her home, disgraces herself with Allah." (Musnad Ahmad, vol. 6, p. 362)
