Is it permissible for a person to fast while in a state of Janaabah?

Question: Is it permissible for a person to fast while in a state of Janaabah (major ritual impurity related to sexual discharge) caused by intercourse with one’s spouse during the night or anything else?

Answer: The Sawm (Fast) of a Junub (person in a state of post-sexual ritual impurity) due to sexual intercourse during the night without taking Ghusl (ritual bath) until after daybreak is valid. Likewise, the Sawm of a Junub due to a wet dream that takes place during the day or the night is valid, even if making Ghusl is delayed until after daybreak. Only sexual intercourse that takes place between daybreak and sunset invalidates Sawm..read more here.

Is taking Janaabah Ghusl compensatory for Ghusl for Jumu’ah or after-menstruation or after-postpartum bleeding Ghusl?

Question 129Is taking Ghusl (ritual bath) following major ritual impurity compensatory for Ghusl on Friday or after menstruation or postpartum period?

Answer: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. In case it is obligatory for a person to have more than one Ghusl, only one Ghusl is sufficient for all states if they intend to eliminate the reasons necessitating Ghusl and thus be able to perform Salaah (prayer) and other acts of worship necessitating Tahaarah (ritual purification), such as Tawaaf (circumambulation around the Ka‘bah). This is because the Prophet (peace be upon him) said… read more here.

Does taking Janaabah Ghusl exempt a person from Wudoo’ ?

Question 128Does taking Ghusl (ritual bath following major ritual impurity) exempt a person from Wudoo’ (ablution), given that the person intends to offer Salaah (Prayer) after Ghusl, or should they perform Wudoo’ besides Ghusl?

Answer: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. Yes, Ghusl is enough; it makes up for Wudoo’ if a person intends to do both. They can offer Salaah as long as they do not invalidate their Wudoo’. If they intend to perform Ghusl only, it does not make up for Wudoo’, according to the most correct opinion of scholars. It was authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he said… read more here.

Neither Wudoo’ (ablution) nor Ghusl necessitates rubbing the whole body or the parts that must be washed, according to the more correct of the two views held by the scholars. So, it would be sufficient for a person who is Junub (in a state of major ritual impurity) to make the water reach all parts of their body… read more here.

Is there any difference in Janaabah Ghusl between men and women ?

Question 126Is there a difference between men’s and women’s Ghusl (ritual bath) following major ritual impurity? Does a woman need to loosen her hair to wash it, or is it sufficient for her to pour three handfuls of water on her hair as narrated in the Hadeeth? What is the difference between the Ghusl of Janaabah (major ritual impurity related to sexual discharge) and that of menstruation?

Answer: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. There is no difference between men and women in terms of the way Ghusl is performed, and neither of them need to loosen their hair to wash it, rather it is sufficient to pour three handfuls of water on the head, then to pour the water over the whole body, for the Hadeeth narrated on the authority of Umm Salamah (may Allaah be pleased with her) that she told the Prophet (peace be upon him)… read more here.

Is Maniy (sperm) pure or impure?

Question 125Is the semen from which man is created pure or not? If it is not impure what is the wisdom behind Ghusl (ritual bath following major ritual impurity)? Is it prohibited to delay Ghusl until the morning in winter for fear of the cold weather?

When it is ejaculated in spurts from a person lustfully through sexual intercourse or a wet dream, Ghusl is compulsory. It is permissible to delay it until morning. A person should take Ghusl to offer Fajr (Dawn) Prayer in its due time. It is not permissible to delay it until the prayer due time is over… read more here.

Does touching things by the Junub before having Ghusl render them impure?

Question 124Is it permissible for a man and his wife after having conjugal intercourse to touch anything before taking Ghusl (ritual bath)? In such a case, does whatever they touch become Najis (impure)?

Answer: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. Yes, it is permissible for someone who is Junub (in a state of major ritual impurity), whether man or woman, to touch different things like clothes, plates, pots, etc before taking Ghusl (ritual bath). A Junub person is not Najis and so nothing is defiled by their touch. This is supported by the authentic Hadeeth reported on the authority of Aboo Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him), who said… read more here.

Should a midwife perform Ghusl after childbirth assistance or is Wudoo’ sufficient?

Question 123Should a midwife perform Ghusl (full ritual bath) after childbirth assistance or is Wudoo’ (ablution) sufficient?

Answer: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. Neither Ghusl nor Wudoo’ is obligatory for a midwife as a result of her assisting a pregnant woman during delivery. She just has to wash off any Najaasah (impurities) – such as blood or the like – that may have soiled parts of her body and clothing if she is going to perform Salaah (Prayer). However, her Wudoo’ is invalidated if she touches the vulva of the pregnant woman during delivery… read more here.

Is it obligatory to use cleansing substances as soap and the like during Ghusl ?

Question 122Can soap be used during Ghusl (ritual bath) following Janaabah (major ritual impurity related to sexual discharge) and why?

Answer: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. Ghusl following major ritual impurity must be performed using water; it is not obligatory to use during it a cleansing substance like soap or similar products, which is what is established by the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet, peace be upon him). However if soap or similar cleansing agents is used, there is nothing wrong with that… read more here.

Answer: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. In any of the above-mentioned cases, the woman does not have to perform Janaabah Ghusl (full ritual bath to cleanse of sexual discharge) nor does it invalidate her Sawm… read more here.

Urination before having Ghusl (full ritual bath) after sexual intercourse

Question 115Someone told me if a Muslim has conjugal intercourse, it is obligatory that he should urinate before performing Ghusl (ritual bath); otherwise he will remain Junub (in a state of major ritual impurity). This is because there will still be some Maniy (spermatic fluid) in his penis that can only be removed by urination. What is your opinion on this?

Answer: The Ghusl is valid without the urination. However, if a man urinates after performing Ghusl and some Maniy comes out along with the urine or alone, but without desire, it is not required to perform Ghusl again. It is sufficient just to perform Istinjaa’ (cleansing the private parts with water after urination or defecation) and the Islaamically prescribed Wudoo’ (ablution)… read more here.

Question 23: Yesterday we were discussing whether it is permissible for a person who is ritually impure to recite the Qur’aan from memory or from books containing some Aayahs (Qur’aanic verses). Allaah (Glorified be He) says: Which (that Book with Allaah) none can touch but the purified. What is the ruling on this issue?

Answer: Any Muslim who wants to touch the Mus-haf (copy of the Qur’aan) should be pure from major or minor ritual impurity. Minor ritual impurity involves all acts that necessitate performing Wudoo’ (ablution).
