Question:

Hi, how badly does a person need to use he bathroom for him to reach the level of ba’al tishaktzu?
Thank you.

Answer:

The Shulchan Aruch Horav says that our bodies naturally hold in our waste until it has to come out, but there is a point when it will naturally come out, and the person has to “hold it in”. That is the point of Baal Tishaktzu.

Have a good Shabbos
