First and Second Washings
Question :

If something is made tahir from urine using under-kurr water, is the water that flows away from it najis or tahir in the first and second washings?

Answer :

The water that flows from the object being washed will be najis, whether it is the first washing or the second.

Purifying from Urine
Question :

When purifying something from urine, is it necessary to pour water twice with under-kurr water? Would it be sufficient to pour water once for a longer period continuously?

Answer :

One must repeat the washing in order to purify a place from urine. It is not sufficient to wash once for an elongated time.

Under-Kurr Water
Question :

What is the ruling of the under-Kurr water which is poured over a najis thing to wash it after the essential najasah has been removed?

Answer :

It is considered to be najis.

Using Under-Kurr Water
Question :

When purifying an object which has become najis due to something other than urine and under-kurr water is used, such as from a pitcher, is it sufficient to just pour water on the object once?

Answer :

Yes, it is sufficient to pour that water once to make it tahir, and it is necessary to pour the water twice if it became najis with urine.

Purifying with Mop
Question :

I live in a high-rise building. A drop of semen fell on the floor in my apartment. It is not possible to wash the floor with running water, because it is not a bathroom, but it is a bedroom. I washed the semen using a mop, and then I washed the mop under running water and then washed the place again, and I did this several times. Has my floor become tahir? Or is my mop becoming najis every time?

Answer :

The taharah is not established by this; therefore, when you wipe the najis part of your floor with the mop, it becomes najis every time you do that, and the najasah is spread to surrounding areas.
One should pour the water on the najis part of the floor, and then collect the water with a cloth or mop, and the place will become tahir.

Muddy Water
Question :

Is muddy water or water containing sugar and salt sufficient for making oneself tahir from najasah?

Answer :

It is possible to use water to make things tahir, if the percentage of salt, sugar and mud in it is so low that it is still conventionally called water.

Removal of Najasah
Question :

I was told that one must remove the essential najasah from a najis object in order to make it tahir again. Is this true?

Answer :

In order to restore the taharah of a najis object with water, the actual najasah, e.g. semen, has to be removed first.

Making an Electronic Device Tahir
Question :

How would I make an electronic device tahir which has become najis, while the water might damage the device?

Answer :

If the said device becomes najis, then it cannot be made tahir without using water. You can use the device even if it is najis. If your hand is dry, then it does not become najis when it touches it.

Seperation of Used Water
Question :

I have read that for making the hand tahir by qaleel water, it is necessary to pour the water on the hand, and when the water flows off the hand the hand will become tahir. Does this apply to all body parts as well as the penis? What if the najasah is urine?

Answer :

Yes, the separation of water from the najis object is a condition in the process of purification if the water used is little (qaleel). This ruling is the same for all parts of the body, including the penis.
If the najasah is urine then one needs to wash the najis object twice when qaleel water is used.

Touching Real Leather
Question :

How do I make myself tahir if I touch real leather of an animal that has not been slaughtered in accordance to Islamic religion? I would normally remove the najasah, then pour water over it a certain number of times, but in this case is there anything to remove?

Answer :

If your hand comes in contact with the impure leather with dampness then it becomes najis even without the actual najasah being transferred to the hand. The hand can be made tahir then by washing it once with water.
If the contact took place without dampness, then this does not make the hand najis.

Washing with Tap Water
Question :

If the body has become najis through urine, is it sufficient to wash it once using water connected to a large source (e.g. tap-water), if while washing the najasah is being removed?

Answer :

Yes, it is sufficient.

Washing with Kurr Water
Question :

If the body has become najis through urine, is it enough to wash it once by using Kurr water, if while washing the najasah is being removed?

Answer :

Yes, it is enough to do so.

Washing Utensils
Question :

What is the ruling concerning making a dish or utensil tahir with Kurr or running water? Should it be washed three times or once?

Answer :

It is enough to wash it once with Kurr or running water with the removal of the essential najasah.

My baby’s diaper
Question :

My baby’s diaper starts leaking in the house and I am sure that one wet spot in the house is urine but I am not sure whether most of the other wet spots in the house are urine. There is a trail of wetness where he was running but I do not know if it is urine or something else. What should I do? Can I use bleach or chemical cleaning products or a mop?

Answer :

The suggested way does not return the taharah of the place. Taharah is done with the use of water. After the removal of the najasah and if under-Kurr water is being used, the najis place should be washed twice, with the removal of the water after each time. This can be done by a piece of cloth or a mop or the like to soak it up. The collected water is najis so one should make sure that najasah does not spread because of it. A bucket or a large utensil can be used near the najis place to put the cloth with the najis collected water.
If running water is used, it is enough to wash the place once with or after the removal of any traces of najasah.
To be sure that the whole place is Tahir, all parts which are suspected to be najis must be made tahir.
