My baby boy is 6 months old. He eats baby food in-addition to breast Milk.If my baby passed urine on my body,do I need to bath or can I just wash the wet area so that my Salah will get accepted.

    Salam and welcome to IslamSE the Q&A site about Islam. Your question lacks information, but I could clearly exclude the necessity of ghusl. While the necessity of wudu' depends on the sex of the baby, the food it eats and the maddhab. Urine in general might be najis, but one doesn't need to perform purification to regain tahrah. While is necessary to remove the najassa (if any) in first place. This is somewhat relevant.

  • Ghusl means washing the entire body. Tahrah is often translated as purity. It means being clean from anything that is regarded as najis (impure, impurity is referred to as najassa). Both are basic and standard terms. Bathing or taking a shower doesn't really describe ghusl.

You need to thoroughly wash the contaminated area with water.

You do not need to perform ghusl or wudu just because of this.

The matters which invalidate wudu are mentioned here. While ghusl is required when one of the following occurs:

  • Secretion of sexual fluids from the private part
  • Menstruation and post-natal bleeding
  • Entering of the private parts into one another
  • Death
  • Converstion to Islam

There is an opinion in some madhabs where the urine of a male baby can just be sprinked over with water rather than properly washed, however this is applicable when he does not eat food.


touching najaasah does not invalidate wudoo’

IslamQA also see here here

  • Id Ghusl means bathing..?

  • @Anees Yes ghusl is bathing, it involves washing the entire body with water. The requirements of it are mentioned in various answers on this site and elsewhere please google etc.

I think you need to make wudoo' if the urine gets onto your body (not only clothes), it doesn't matter if the urine is from a baby or someone else or yourself since it would be an impurity (najaasah). If it is only on your clothes, then you can clean the area with water and make wudoo' just in case. Be aware that this is just my interpretation/opinion, Allah knows best.

    Your linked reference explicitly says that ghusl and wudu is not required, as opposed to your answer.
