Question

Asalamo aleioum scholars. When I got up I cleaned my underwear with my hands and water from the madhiy (najis)touching the suposed madhiy directly.Then I put again my clothes as my pants ans mu jumper without cleaning again my hands with water only after having put my clothes. Does putting my clothes and touching them made them impure as I did not washed again my hands with water? notice that I celanead the supposed madhy with my hands directly and using water. Then I ignored such thing and I prayed my such clothes and Im still praying with them. What should I do?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

What is obligatory in the case of Mathi, is to splash water on the clothes that have been stained with it, and wash the body from that is stained with it.

Hence, if you had cleansed your garment by wiping it with water, and you did not splash water over it, then it is not ruled to be pure. You are obliged to purify it according to the Islamic method.

Your prayers are ruled to be valid because you were unaware of the ruling.

But if you had splashed water on the impurity and then you rubbed that place with your hand, then if the water that is present in the place of impurity has not changed due to the impurity – as it appears from your question – then it is ruled to be pure, and therefore, your hand is ruled to be pure as well.

Allah knows best.
