Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. If a person were to perform the prayer with a najasah (impurity) present on his body that he is aware of, is his prayer valid? الصلاة بالنجاسة


Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

As to what follows:

According to the majority of scholars, one’s prayer is not valid if there is a najasah (impurity) present on the garment or body of the one performing the prayer. This is evidenced by the words of Allah Almighty:

“And your clothing purify.” [Al-Muddaththir 74:4]

And also the hadith narrated by Asma’ (may Allah be pleased with her) when she said, “A woman came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said, “What should one do if the blood of menses smears the garment of one amongst us?” He replied, “She should scrape it, rub it with water, pour water over it, and then perform the prayer in it.” [Bukhari (220) and Muslim (29)] 

In addition to other textual evidences.

Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Muslih
