The reason for doing wudoo’ after eating camel meat

What is the reason for doing wudoo’ after eating camel meat?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

It is proven that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) enjoined doing wudoo’ after eating camel meat, but he did not explain the reason why. We know that Allah, may He be glorified, is Most Wise and All Knowing, and He does not prescribe anything for His slaves except that which is good and is in their best interests in this world and the Hereafter, and He does not forbid to them anything but that which is harmful for them in this world and the Hereafter.

What the Muslim should do is accept the commands of Allah, may He be glorified, and His Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and act upon them, even if he does not know the exact reason behind them. Similarly, he has to refrain from that which Allah and His Messenger have forbidden, even if he does not know the exact reason behind it, because he is a slave who is commanded to obey Allah and His Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). He was created to do that, so he has to obey and submit, whilst believing that Allah is Most Wise and All-Knowing. If he finds out the reason behind it, then that is good upon good.

Ruling on wearing one pair of socks over another when one did wudoo’ wiping over the first pair

A man wiped over his socks, then put another pair over them before he broke his wudoo’, then he broke his wudoo’ so he did wudoo’ for prayer. Can he wipe over the second pair of socks or not ?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, it is permissible to wipe over the second pair of socks if he put them on over socks that he had wiped over, because he put them on when he was in a state of purity. So that comes under the general meaning of the words of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) in the hadeeth narrated by ‘Urwah ibn al-Mugheerah from his father who said: I was travelling with the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and I reached out to take his khufoof (off his feet) and he said: “Let them be, for I put my feet in them when they (my feet) were pure (after doing wudoo’).” And he wiped over them”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 199

An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said: If he put on the khufoof (leather slippers) when he was in a state of purity, then he broke his wudoo’ and wiped over them, then he put on the jarmooq (a kind of large khuff that is worn over the regular khuff) when he was in a state of purity in which he had wiped over the khuff when he did wudoo’, then there are two well-known opinions as to whether it is permissible to wipe over them (the jarmooq). The first opinion is that it is permissible to wipe over them because he put them on when he was in a state of purity. And the second opinion is that it is not permissible, because that was an incomplete purification. That is how many of the scholars look at it.

Ar-Rawiyaati said: The more correct view is that it is not permissible to wipe over them. Others said that the more correct opinion is that it is permissible to wipe over them. This is the opinion of Shaykh Abu Haamid. It may be understood from the words of ar-Raafi‘i and others that this (the second view) is more correct and it is the view that is to be favoured, because he put them on in a state of purity. Their saying that it is an incomplete purification is not acceptable.  Continue reading

He wiped over his khufoof then remembered that the time for wiping had ended. Should he wash his feet or repeat wudoo’?

1. Should one have the intention of wiping over the khufoof before starting to do wudoo’, or when he reaches the washing of the feet should he just wipe or wash them?
2. There is a person who did wudoo’ and wiped over his khufoof, then straight after he had wiped over his khufoof he remembered that the period for wiping over the khufoof had ended. Should he take off the khufoof and wash his feet, or should he take off his khufoof and repeat wudoo’ from the beginning?.

Praise be to Allaah.

The intention is not essential for it to be permissible to wipe over the khufoof. So long as the individual put on the khufoof when he was in a state of purity, he may wipe over them. It is not essential for him to form the intention to wipe over them before doing wudoo’; rather when he reaches that point in his wudoo’, he may wipe over them and that is sufficient.

Is it mustahabb for the woman to do wudoo’ before having intercourse a second time, as it is the man?

In one of your fatwas you say, the man should say a duaa before having sexual intercourse with his wife and also that he should do Wudoo if he has sexual intercourse more than once. Does same apply also to the woman? Can she also say the duaa, when the man is too “distracted”?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

The du‘aa’ that is to be said before having intercourse is prescribed for the man, but there is nothing wrong with the woman saying it. See the answer to question no. 95742 . Continue reading

He injured his toe – how should he do wudoo’?

I have an injury on my toe; can I put a bandage on it? What should I do in wudoo’? Is it permissible for me to wipe over the socks in this case?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

What is required is to wash the parts of the body that Allah has enjoined washing in wudoo’ and to wash each part thoroughly so that there is no part of it that the water had not reached.

If there is an injury in the part that one is enjoined to wash, and there is the fear that it will be harmed or healing may be delayed by washing it, then he may wipe over it with water if it is uncovered and he is able to wipe over it. If it is uncovered but he is not able to wipe over it, then he should wash whatever he can of the parts of his body and do tayammum instead for the parts that he cannot wash or wipe over.  Continue reading

He broke his wudoo’ during tawaaf and completed that circuit, then he did wudoo’

I delayed tawaaf al-ifaadah until tawaaf al-wadaa‘ (the farewell tawaaf), then my family and I did tawaaf on the roof (of the Haram). Shortly before completing the third circuit, I broke my wudoo’ but I completed the circuit until I reached a place where I could wudoo’ on the roof, and I counted the circuits. Then in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh circuits, I went into the Mas‘aa because of the overcrowding, then I went back to the mataaf. What is the ruling?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

Being in a state of purity (tahaarah) is a condition of tawaaf being valid according to the majority of scholars, but they differed concerning a case where a person breaks his wudoo during tawaaf then does wudoo’: should he complete the circuits or start tawaaf over again? There are two opinions. The Hanafis and Shaafa‘is part of the view that he should resume his tawaaf. The Maalikis and Hanbalis are of the view that he should start tawaaf again from the beginning. See: al-Mawsoo ah al-Fiqhiyyah, 29/131

Some scholars are of the view that being in a state of purity is not essential in tawaaf. This is the view favoured by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him). Based on that, the one who breaks his wudoo’ during tawaaf does not have to go out to do wudoo’. See the answer to question no. 34695Continue reading

Ruling on wearing a wig for a woman who is bald; can she wipe over it when doing wudoo’?

I suffer from hair loss, and have bald patches on parts of my head. This has made me depressed. Sometimes I see young girls with beautiful hair and they feel sorry for me. I have tried to get hair transplant surgery, but the doctors told me that it will never work with me, because the skin of my scalp is not suitable. Even though I cover my head when I go out and I wear hijab, when I am at home or in family gatherings or parties where men and women are segregated and I do not need to wear hijab, I feel very upset because I cannot take it off. Is it permissible for me to wear a wig? 
If the answer is yes, does it have any effect on wudoo’?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

In the answer to question no. 1171, we stated that it is haraam to use wigs in principle, even if it is for a woman to adorn herself for her husband, and that it comes under the heading of hair extensions, which are haraam.

In the answers to questions no. 101430 and 113548, we stated that it is permissible to wear a wig in order to cover a defect in the case of a woman who is bald, and that this is the view of Shaykh al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him), unlike other contemporary scholars who regard that as coming under the same heading as hair extensions which are haraam. The words of Shaykh al-‘Uthaymeen may be found in the questions referred to.  Continue reading

Doing Sa’ee without wudoo’

When I did Sa’ee between al-Safa and al-Marwah, my wudoo’ became invalidated, and I could not go out to renew my wudoo’. This happened to me during Tawaaf al-Wadaa’ as well. 
What is the ruling on one who does Tawaaf and Sa’ee and does not have wudoo’? May Allaah reward you with good.

Praise be to Allaah.

Your Sa’ee between al-Safa and al-Marwah is valid, even if it was done without wudoo’, because that is not a condition of Sa’ee. But your Tawaaf al-Wadaa’ was not valid, because one of the conditions of Tawaaf is that you should be taahir (pure). So you have to repeat it so long as you are still in Makkah, but if you have left and gone back to your country, then you have to have a sacrifice offered in Makkah and given to the poor.

And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad.  Continue reading

There is nothing wrong with praying the two sunnah rak’ahs following wudoo’ and entering ihraam after that, even if one does not usually do that

If a person does not usually pray two rak’ahs after doing wudoo’, can he pray them when he enters ihraam so that he may enter ihraam after doing that?.

Praise be to Allaah.

Yes, there is nothing wrong with praying them in order to enter ihraam afterwards, so that one will be entering ihraam after praying.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked: You said that a person may enter ihraam after praying the Sunnah prayer following wudoo’ if he usually prays it. But if he does not usually do that but he offers this prayer, what is the ruling?

He replied:

I think that there is nothing wrong with it. If a person does something, he does not have to do it all the time. So long as the Sunnah prayer after wudoo’ is prescribed in sharee’ah and he wants to pray, there is nothing wrong with it, and there is nothing wrong with it even if he usually does not offer this prayer.

He had a wet dream and could not do ghusl so he did wudoo’ and prayed

I am a disabled man sitting on wheelchair. Alhamdulillah.
I had a wet dream in some night before Fajr prayer. Due to the weakness of my body and strength I could not make ghusl nor could I change my clothes except the next morning. I did not want to miss Fajr prayer on time, so I made ablution like I normally do for prayers, and then prayed. Is that permissible? If it is not then what shall I do?

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

We ask Allaah to grant you well being in this world and in the Hereafter.

Anyone who becomes junub as the result of a wet dream or intercourse has to do ghusl, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salaah (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to the ankles.  If you are in a state of Janaaba (i.e. after a sexual discharge), purify yourselves (bathe your whole body)”
