  • Doubting discharge of Mani does not necessitate Ghusl Date: 18-3-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I am a 22-year-old male. I am getting a white fluid discharge frequently from my penis without any sexual arousal and without any erection. But when I am sexually aroused, I get a sticky colorless fluid discharge. For the past five months, I have been doing Ghusl (bath taken in case of major ritual impurity) almost every morning because.. More

  • Performing ablution without rinsing mouth after lip injury Date: 21-2-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I received a cut on the inside of my lip while playing soccer, but the blood was most likely very little since I do not remember tasting blood in my mouth and continued playing. Afterwards, I performed ablution, rinsed my mouth thrice, and then prayed with that ablution. Should I have rinsed my mouth before performing the ablution?.. More

  • Praying on floor that might have absorbed alcohol Date: 21-12-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu. A few months ago, I learned that every liquid intoxicant is impure. I also read a fatwa that says that if impurities penetrate an absorbing material like wood, it becomes impossible to purify it. My question is: if the wooden floor was varnished with a solvent that contains 20% of ethanol, does that.. More

  • Purity of slip agents used in plastic bags Date: 21-11-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. I recently found out that many plastic bags (and other plastics) contain 'slip agents' that are made from rendered animal fat. Does that mean that they are impure? And are we spreading impurityby touching wet plastic? May Allaah reward you. .. More

    Are dogs pure or impure? {Say: Lawful for you are [all] good foods and [game caught by] what you have trained of hunting animals which you train as Allah has taught you.} [Quran 5:4] Ibn Mughaffal reported that the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam,ordered killing the dogs and then said, “What about them?” (i. e. about other dogs)..

  • Using fabric softener that has beef products in ingredients Date: 17-10-2016

    I saw a fatwa here, but I need more clarification because it does not really go into detail about beef in non-edible products. If beef is used in fabric softener, but not pork, can we use it on our clothes even though we do not know if it was Zabiha beef, or is the ruling of Istihaalah applicable? If we cannot, and we have already used it, then are.. More

  • Doubting whether he discharged semen or urine Date: 18-6-2016

    I have a problem with urinating while sleeping, but it is not so much that it wakes me up. However, I find a stain when I wake up in the morning and do not know whether it is only urine or not? I have this problem very often and want to know whether I have to perform ghusl or not. I do not remember having dreamt and did not feel any discharge. When.. More

  • Humans and cats do not become impure if they eat impure food Date: 4-6-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. If a cat is given haram food to eat (like cat food with pork or other haram meat in it), does the cat itself become impure? Does anything that it touches or licks after that become impure? Also, if a human was to eat haram or impure food, would that person himself become impure? May Allaah reward you. .. More

  • Purifying clothes stained with mathi Date: 28-2-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. Thank you very much for answering my question, but, please, I want more clarification. In that question, question 2598062, I already stated that at first I used some clothes and then stopped that and then used sticky tape to absorb the madhi(prostatic fluid)in the past. However, this brought a lot of inconvenience to me, and it will.. More

  • Traces of semen could still be visible on absorbent pads Date: 11-2-2016

    I have some urinary incontinence. I use pads to alleviate the problem, but they are very absorbent. According to a hadith, if one sees signs of wetness upon waking up, one must perform ghusl (shower taken in case of major ritual impurity). I usually do not do so, but if I do go to sleep wearing the pads, then even if I had a wet dream, there would be.. More

  • Using fabric softener that contains pig fat Date: 9-2-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. Thank you for all that you do on this site! Please, I ask that you answer this question and do not give links. I use liquid fabric softener and fabric softener sheets while doing the laundry. I read that they contain pig and beef fat, does this mean that it is haram? Or does it change in such a way that it becomes halal? If it is.. More

  • Touching clothes stained with mathy with a wet hand Date: 31-1-2016

    Given that it is sufficient to sprinkle water onto clothes if madhi (pre-seminal fluid) gets on them, thendoes a person's hand become impure if he touches the cloth with wet hands? .. More

  • Claiming that most banknotes are impure Date: 26-1-2016

    It has been determined through research that one in seven banknotes in the UK is affected by faecal matter. Therefore it is inevitable that this faecal matter comes in touch with people's hands. Do we therefore regard money as impure to touch? Or do we ignore this waswas (whispering) and continue to touch money on the basis that our senses do not see.. More

    Assalaamu alaykum. I have been Muslim for about ten months now, and I will soon be taking part in a ladies sales event in a local mosque environment with another sister.

  • A stolen item is not ritually impure Date: 23-12-2015

    Assalaamu alaykum. My question is the following: for example, I stay with people that are not really worried about eating stolen foods or using stolen perfumes and so on. If I get into contact with those foods, perfumes, and so on, can I then pray in this state, or do I have to wash it off? Please note that it is really hard to avoid. .. More
