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


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
