Malaysian Invention -Auto Wudu Washer

Interesting news out of Malaysia; an Auto Wudu machine has been invented which saves on water. They are hoping to market it to the middle east mainly but it would be great for any mosque in any country. Wouldn't it be great to see these in mainstream bathrooms in the west instead of people contorting themselves to get their feet in the sink. I often wonder why people don't use the right to wipe over their socks and save themselves all the hassle and embarrassment. What do you think, will anyone fork over $3-4000 for these?


  1. ASA -- here is the comment where it was originally intended!

    I LOVE it!!! I'd put it in my house if I could afford that (my husband manages to get water EVERYWHERE when he does wudu! It would also be great for teaching your kids.

    The only thing that I don't see necessary is the "side" outlets for washing your arms...but whatever. What a neat piece of technology!

  2. Salaams:

    Reminds me of the system they have in some public bathrooms in America - less the feet of course. They have the sensors that automatically turn the water on and off. And the same for flushing the toilet. The dern thing has a motion sensor and can tell when you get up, lol.

    Heather we just do wudu in the mess that way.

    Safiyyah the first place I saw automatic toilets was in Malaysia in 2000. At that time I hadn't seen them in Canada yet. The thing that freaks me out about those toilets is how some women don't know they are pregnant and end up giving birth there! "shudders".
