This research deals with the indications of the prohibitions in the hadiths of the ablution book in Sahih al-Bukhari and their effect on the jurisprudential rulings. The problem of this topic lies in the inclarity of the prohibition indication and the most preferred meaning in the hadiths. The objectives of this research are to explain and clarify this indication in every Hadith in which the prohibition is mentioned and to deduce the impact of the prohibitions in the chosen hadiths on the jurisprudential rulings. The research implemented the inductive method where data are collected; and the analytical method through which the statements of jurists about preference process and extrapolation of jurisprudential impacts of the implications of the prohibition contained in the hadiths are analysed. The most important results of this study include, the Hadith which says: “He should not perform ablution if uncertain” indicates prohibition based on the original rule which is agreed upon by the consensus of the four schools of Islamic law; and that the discouragement of the Hadith which is the cleaning and touching the genitals with the right hand indicates abhorrence of such action because it can be classified under etiquettes. Also, the jurists agreed on the discouragement of making tawaf  for the menstruating women indicates prohibition. Only Ibn Taymiyyah, his disciple Ibn Al-Qayyim and some contemporary scholars disagreed with them because they want to remove difficulty.
