One with a colonostomy generally has 3 excretions per day and should make the bracha of Asher Yatzar after each excretion. Nishmas Avraham (ed 2) Orach Chaim 7:1;note 7) Rav SY Elyashiv, Rav SZ Auerbach and Tzitz Eliezer write that he can only make the bracha after cleaning and covering the area. Nishmas Avraham (ed 2) Orach Chaim 76:9;note 7) See pg 24, ...

This form of writing is often found throughout the Torah. In your example, the word נקבים means orifices, and while literally when it's doubled it should read 'orifices orifices', when a word is repeated it's used to stress the previous word. In your example, which I believe would apply to all nouns, repeating the word means 'many of the [word in question]. ...

In English, we often double a word for emphasis or to indicate volume. ("miles and miles" means "many miles") The practice of lashon kaful (doubling of language) is not limited to this prayer but is often found in biblical text on the level of the word (shamo'a tishma) and the phrase ("Vieileh Toldot Yitzchak Ben Avraham, Avraham Holid Et Yitzchak") and is a ...

See Minchas Yitzchak (6:38:3) that after producing a urine sample, the bracha of Asher Yatzar is said. It does not matter that it was induced and not completely natural. See Mishnas Avraham, Orach Chayim 7 fn 8 that Rav SZ Auerback agrees with Minchas Yitzchak but cites an otherwise difficult and possibly dissenting view of Chavos Yair.

Yes, one should say Asher Yatzar even if he did not wash his hands. And if one was mishafshef, meaning he wiped the sprinkles of urine, he is required to clean his hands, even still, when there is no water he can wipe them on any surface that will clean them. Shulchan Aruch siman 7 siff 2 with Mishna Berurah s.k. 5.

As @DanF comments "you need to be clothed and outside the bathroom". Rabbi Ari Enkin has an extensive discussion of how much time you have. The main opinions that he quotes are shortened below (see the article for references) According to some authorities there is actually no set time limit. The Levush discusses a situation in which one went to the ...

This is the subject of dispute. The Tur (OC 165) records that while Rashi's teacher (R Yaakov ben Yakar) ruled to wash twice and say Asher Yatzar in the middle, Rashi himself thought it was fine to wash once and say Asher Yatzar after finishing washing before saying HaMotzi. See there and in the Beit Yosef for how all the different Rishonim come out on the ...

By law Ruach ra is not to touch orifices or food to remove it (completely) you need to use water To say a brocho you only need to make your hands clean, (better with water, not only fingertips but whole fingers). If you slept with clothing your hands are considered clean for saying a brocho But according to kabolo (Zohar) you can not make a brocho (or ...

From here : If one used the bathroom after saying HaMapil, it is permissible to say the Bracha of “Asher Yatzar”, and it isn’t considered a hefsek (interruption) between the Bracha and sleeping. After saying “Asher Yatzar”, one should repeat the first Parsha of Krias Shma and say some Pesukim (Shu”t Tzitz Eliezer Vol. 7 Siman 27, Shu”t Be’er Moshe Vol. 1 ...

Asher Yatzar says "that if one of them were opened or one of them were closed, a person would be unable to maintain himself" i.e. the functions that we say Asher Yatzar on pose health problems would we not be able to perform them. Many people get vasectomies and are fine. So the blessing isn't appropriate.

In the context of interruptions during morning t'fila the B(e)i'ur Halacha (in 51:4) brings down the opinion of Derech Hachayim regarding birkas 'asher yatzar'. He holds that one may say this b'racha in between Baruch She'amar and Yishtabach despite the ruling of the Chayei Adam that he should wait until he has finished his prayers. The weakness in the ...
