  • Allah does not want to place you in difficulty, but He wants to purify you Date: 21-4-2017

    Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu. I have a question regarding impurity. I used to mop the floor of my house using a wet mop, and I used to mop gecko filth on the floor. I read that impurity transfers through wet things; then that means that now the entire floor of my house became impure. I also read that impurities on the floor must.. More

  • Stepping on dry impurity Date: 12-4-2017

    Assalaam alaykum. I accidentally stepped on a dry impurity (feces from more than two months ago that was never properly cleaned. The area is left with dark stains, yet no pieces of fecal matter.) with a partially wet sandal. Then I walked a few steps until I arrived at a room which has a curtain that hangs over the entrance. When I entered the room,.. More

  • Insignificant blood from wound excused in prayer Date: 16-2-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I entered the masjid with a cut on my big toe that nearly goes completely under my toe. Before walking in, I thoroughly checked to make sure that there was no blood coming out of the wound. During the prayer, I felt some pain in my foot. When I walked out of the masjid, I saw blood on the inside of my wound. I also saw a little bit.. More

  • Washing impurity off table or floor Date: 25-12-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. How should I wash a surface (a table or floor) that had Mani (semen)or Mathi (pre-ejaculatory fluid)on it? Is it enough to wet a rag and then wipe the area once? If I need to wipe more than once, do I need to wash the rag each time before each wipe? .. More

  • Removing Maniyy and Mathi from your body Date: 9-11-2016

    With regards to Mathi (pre-ejaculatory fluid)and Mani (semen),are we supposed to wipe them off and pour water over the privates, or is pouring water without wiping sufficient? For example, if Mathi comes out and I wipe what is on the surface and then pour water, is that enough to purify, or should I wipe, pour water, and then wipe again multiple times?.. More

  • Waswaas about purity from feminine discharge Date: 31-10-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. I read that women have to perform ablution for every prayer due to the female discharge, and that discharge from the uterus is pure but impure from the urethra. I apply this as much as I can, and since I cannot distinguish between urethral and uterus discharge, I wash my private parts before every prayer and sprinkle water on my clothes.. More

  • Using wet wipes to remove impurity from smooth surfaces Date: 21-10-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. Please, can you advise if multi-purpose cleaning wipes can be used to clean impurities on smooth surfaces such as wardrobes, doors, handles, tables, and so on, because in this day and age, a lot of people use these? Is this method regarded pure? What about furnishings with pores? These are wet wipes that are antibacterial and kill.. More

  • Removing urine drops with wet towel Date: 21-10-2016

    Please, I realized that when I urinated, some tiny drops splashed on my thighs; I soaked a towel with water and cleaned these drops. I do not know whether what I did was right or not. Please tell me. I have looked through all the fatwas on urine but did not found a suitable answer. I feel that what I did was right since the water took away the impurity.. More

  • Impurity is only transmitted if it is damp Date: 6-10-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. My question is a very different question. Please help me and guide me. If something in your home is impure and you know about it and your family members touch it or use it and they are not aware of the impurity of that particular thing but only you are aware of the impurity, then what should be done? Should you tell them about the.. More

  • Washing bedcovers stained with semen Date: 27-9-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. I put my bedsheets/bedcovers in the washing machine due to the impurity of semen (I am aware that there are different opinions about this, but I take the more difficult view in order to be on the safe side - I am not sure if this is correct either). One of the bedcovers is waterproof (to protect the mattress). The washing machine.. More

  • Color of impurity that remains after washing clothes of no effect Date: 19-9-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. When washing my impure clothes, there was one incident where one of my undergarments had stains remaining while other clothes were clean from impurity. So can I wear that undergarment, or do I have to wash it and also clean the other clothes (all clothes have been washed three times in the washing machine)? .. More

  • Washing impurity from toddler Date: 24-7-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. I want to ask how I should give a bath to my one-year-old baby when he has passed stool or urine and put his hand in it and then touched his other body parts as well. I used to wash his hands first, but then while washing his private parts, he would again touch his body where he touched earlier with his dirty hands. Also, when take.. More

  • Washing clothes tainted with dog impurity Date: 19-7-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum, fatwa no. 126853 did not at all answer my question, so I had to send it again. I hope that you can find a way to help me with my question. When I washed my clothes after they got dirty from dogs, I washed them the first time with soil and water, and I think that I then washed them five more times thinking that this was the right way..

  • Sending impure clothes for washing Date: 16-5-2016

    I give my impure clothes for washing. People who wash my clothes put them in a washing machine or a tub and wash them once or twice or more . I do not know whether that is the correct method or not or if there is some difference of opinion. What should I do with clothes that were washed like this and with clothes of which I ignore how they were washed?.. More

  • Suspecting that bath products contain impurity Date: 20-4-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. I live in the UK, and as you may know, many shower gels/soaps/shampoos/etc here contain haram pig, beef, and so on, hence, they are possiblyimpure. I never used to check the ingredients of the products that I used because I was ignorant about this issue until recently. 1. Do I have to go back and check the ingredients of all the.. More
