Would Allah allow you to feed your baby something impure? Milk is not among the things that break wudu': Which things break the wudu? In verse (16:66) milk was declared as pure: ... We give you drink from what is in their bellies - between excretion and blood - pure milk, palatable to drinkers. The scholars are in full consent that it is pure, here a ...

There is considerable debate whether touching your own private parts breaks wudu, the ruling heavily depends on madhhab. As for shafii fiqh, "reliance of the traveler" (unless I'm mistaken, this is the most respected legal manual in the shafii school) mentions that it does not matter whose private parts you touch, and whether you do it intentionally or not; ...

*يَـأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ إِذَا قُمْتُمْ إِلَى الصَّلوةِ فاغْسِلُواْ وُجُوهَكُمْ وَأَيْدِيَكُمْ إِلَى الْمَرَافِقِ وَامْسَحُواْ بِرُؤُوسِكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُمْ إِلَى الْكَعْبَينِ “O you who believe!

Their argument seems to be that: Pigs are strictly forbidden and impure according to the Quran: أو لحم خنزير فإنه رجس or the flesh of swine - for indeed it is impure — Quran 6:145 حرمت عليكم الميتة والدم ولحم الخنزير وما أهل لغير الله به Prohibited to you are dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to ...

If you can't get this off even by washing, you have done enough effort to clean your pants! And therefore you can consider it as tahir! The majority of scholars from the Maliki, Shafi'i and Hanbali school consider a tissue tahir if it was not possible to wash off the color of a najassa. As the color of a najassa is considered a one of the three parts or ...

First of all you should know that some scholars consider semen (many) as (ritually) clean (tahir) so washing it and wasting water for this propose doesn't make sense at all (see for example islamqa #170012). Secondly assuming semen is considered as najis (not ritually clean) G. Bach already quoted this hadith A Bedouin urinated in the mosque. Some of the ...

The short answer is as Laconic said: If you prayed your prayers without noticing that you have ejaculated you should re-do all of them, after performing ghusl (having a bath or shower) once you found out that you have been praying in this state. Because cleanliness (tahara) is a major condition for the validity of your prayers! So your prayers are void ...

There's nothing wrong with touching and playing with a dog. They are pure animals and no need for purifying yourself afterward. It's a cultural stigma that has made dogs into filthy animals and it's not related to Islam. So it's not haraam and it's not even disliked. Dogs use to wonder around and urinate in the masjid (mosque) during the time of ...

This saying has no basis neither in Quran nor Sunna. It might be an overdraw interpretation of ahadith which prohibit eating their meat (Sahih Muslim 1 2 which considers them as part of as-siba-a السِّبَاعِ or as a conclusion from this hadith in sahih al-Bukhari and this from sahih Muslim as it's forbidden to sell them they shouldn't be eaten) or about ...

Yes they are, because of that the Prophet ordered us to clean a vessel which has been licked by a dog, seven times the first with soil. Muslim (279) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The purification of the vessel of one of you, if a dog licks ...

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم It won’t be counted as a haram (forbidden) act. In truth, it is not haram to touch dogs, but Islam emphasizes in order to preventing form being Najis (impure). Since as you possibly are aware, you should wash (by its conditions) your hand if you touch a dog(s) if: You as a person who touches the dog or the dog be wet (one of them, or ...

It is said that every act of kindness towards any living thing is rewarded. A dog is also included. Also many say that there was one an old person in a desert with a dog and it was really hot.

It is haram (forbidden) to eat pork, as pig flesh is considered impure (najasat). Forbidden to you is... the flesh of swine... -- Qur'an 5:3 O Muhammad tell them: I did not find in what has been revealed to me anything forbidden to be eaten by one who wishes to eat it, except the meat of an already dead animal, or running blood or the flesh of swine ...

Performing Wudhu in the space of toilet is not deemed as a haram (forbidden) practice and as a result it is a permissible practice. Solely, it would be Makruh (Makruh means it is better not to do, but is it not haram) if the water of Wudhu spills into the sewer of the toilet. (It might be related to this issue that the water of Wudhu is deemed as a Taaher ...

I keep saying that tahara and najasa have only a tangential connection to cleanness, hygiene, dirtiness and impurity. They primarily are ritual necessities! Usually the dogs at airports don't sniff or come too close to any bag unless it has either some food they may like in it (and if they are well trained they wouldn't even do this) or it contains drugs (...

Pig-derived collagen would be impure (najis). Consider consulting the manufacturer, as your shampoo may not be derived from pigs. In the following fatwa, the hydrolyzation process was considered an insufficient transformation to change this status in the context of creams and lotions: Hydrolyzed collagen is produced from collagen found in the bones, ...

First of all note that in fiqh: dirty is no synonym of najis and tahir is no synonym of clean. Najis is what Allah considers najis you a nurse or doctor may clean your wounds with alcohol, but Alcohol is najis. You may not want to drink used water, but it is tahir. This hadith from sahih Muslim tells us that we can -basically- pray where ever we are: I ...

Note that blood and pus are considered as najis (ritually unclean)by most scholars (See for example What items are considered najis in fiqh?). Ibn Taymiyyah is among those few who considered at least pus as tahir (ritually clean). So praying with one or both of them on the body or clothes may make a prayer invalid. Nevertheless as it is the case with water ...

All scholars are in consensus that urine is najis (ritually impure). So to wear clothes that you know of them having got in contact with urine (See also about the case if you prayed this way without knowing it Is istinja' necessary for ablution?) while praying, you must have washed at least the parts that are najis (with water). In case of doubt -about ...

Alqama and Aswad reported: أَنَّ رَجُلاً، نَزَلَ بِعَائِشَةَ فَأَصْبَحَ يَغْسِلُ ثَوْبَهُ فَقَالَتْ عَائِشَةُ إِنَّمَا كَانَ يُجْزِئُكَ إِنْ رَأَيْتَهُ أَنْ تَغْسِلَ مَكَانَهُ فَإِنْ لَمْ تَرَ نَضَحْتَ حَوْلَهُ وَلَقَدْ رَأَيْتُنِي أَفْرُكُهُ مِنْ ثَوْبِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَرْكًا فَيُصَلِّي فِيهِ A person stayed in the house of A'...

If you consider sperm as najis then washing it out is sufficient as you don't need to wash the whole piece of cloth this is the view of abu Hanifa and one opinion of imam Ahmad while imam Malik said one must wash it off, apparently without stating it is najis. Note that washing something off (or using water) usually is done for cleaning najasa. Else there's ...

SeekersHub describes two opposite opinions on this matter: They become pure: A machine will rinse the laundry multiple times after washing it with detergent.

Islam means surrender and submitting to Allah, compliance with his orders and avoid prohibitions, knowing that Allah only commands what benefit us , and forbidden what is evil. After submitting to that, it's ok to search for the wisdom of the do's and don'ts, but I’m not comfortable with people try to add extra (invented) justifications (i.e philosophy) to ...
