What do we understand from: breathing the soul into the fetus after four months?

Question: Do we understand from breathing the soul into the fetus after four months, that the zygote formed by the union of the male sperm and the female ovum, from which the embryo develops, is without a soul, or what?

Answer: For each, the sperm and the ovum, is a form of life that suits it. If they are not damaged, they will be prepared to unite with each other, with the Permission and Predestination of Allaah. When this happens an embryo is formed, if Allaah wills. The embryo will also have a life of its own, which suits it, during which it grows and develops through the known stages… 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.

If one has Janaabah Ghusl, can they pour water over their bodies without rubbing?

Question 127Would it be acceptable for a person who performs Ghusl (ritual bath) following Janaabah (major ritual impurity related to sexual discharge) if he makes the water reach all parts of his body without rubbing it?

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.

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.
