Purification
Q [1]  Is Muddy water or water containing sugar and salt sufficient for making oneself Tahir from Najasah?
It is possible to purify with water if the percentage of salt, sugar and mud in it is so low that it is still conventionally called water.
Q [2]  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?
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 purify the najis object twice when little water is used.
Q [3]  If the body has become Najis through urine, is it sufficient to purify it once by using water connected to a large source (e.g. water-tap), if while washing the Najasah is being removed?
Yes, it is sufficient.
Q [4]  If the body has become Najis through urine, is it enough to purify it once by using Kurr water, if while washing the Najasah is being removed?
Yes, it is enough to do so.
Q [5]  What is the ruling concerning making a dish or utensil tahir with kurr or running water, Should it be washed three times or once?
It is enough to purify it once with kurr or running water with the removal of the impurity.
Q [6]  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 don’t know if it is urine or something else. What should I do? Can I use bleach or chemical cleaning products or a mop?
The suggested way does not return the purity of the place. Purification is done with the use of water. After the removal of impurity and when washed with little water, the place of impurity should be washed twice with collecting the water after each time. This can be done by a piece of cloth used to soak up. The collected water is impure so one should make sure that Najasah does not spread because of it. A bucket or a dish can be used near the Najis place to place the cloth with the impure 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 make sure the place is Tahir, all parts which are suspected to Najis must be made Tahir.
Q [7]  How do I purify myself 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?
If your hand comes in contact with the impure leather with dampness then it became impure even without the actual Najasah being transferred to the hand. The hand can be purified then by washing it once with water.
If the contact took place without transferred dampness from one side to the other, then this does not make the hand Najis.
Q [8]  How would I purify an electronic device which has become Najis, while the water might damage the device?
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.
Q [9]  If my shoes become najis by stepping into najasah, can I purify my shoes by rubbing them on the earth?
Earth can only purify the soles of the shoes, the feet and the like by walking on them, provided that the najasah was caused by walking on the earth.
Earth can purify when it is dry and based on an obligatory precaution it must be Tahir.
Q [10]  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?
The taharah is not established by this; 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 collect the water with a cloth, and the place will become tahir.
