Taking out dentures in Wudu

 

Question:

 

Salaams my Ulama. Must a person take out dentures when taking Wudu? In rinsing mouth I mean.

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

Wa `alaykumus salaam.

 

It would not be compulsory to remove dentures when performing Wudhoo, because rinsing the mouth is a Sunnah of Wudhoo and not a Fardh.

 

Mullaa Khusro Rahimahullaah says in Durarul Hukkaam Sharh Ghurarul Ahkaam: “And of its (i.e. Wudhoo) Sunnah actions is rinsing the mouth, that is to let water reach the entire mouth.” [i]

 

However washing the mouth is an obligatory action of Ghusl.

 

Imaam Ash-Shurunbulaali Rahimahullaah says in Noorul Eedhaah: “There are eleven things which are obligatory to wash in Ghusl. 1: Washing the mouth.” [ii]

 

Therefore, it depends on the dentures; if it’s loose enough to be moved in the mouth in order for the water to reach the entire mouth, then it will be valid, although preferable to remove it entirely.

 

But if water cannot reach the entire mouth while it’s in due to its snug fit, then it would have to be removed before Ghusl can be made.

 

 

And Allaah knows best.

Does my wudhu remain if I swear?

 

Question:

 

Does my wudhu remain if I swear? Swearing meaning profanity, foul language

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

The nullifiers of Wudhoo are known from the Qur’aan and Sunnah, and there is no authentic narration of swearing being one of them, therefore swearing will not affect one’s Wudhoo.

 

Imaam Al-Jawraqaani Rahimahullaah reports in Al-Abaateel Wal Manaakeer Was Sihaah Wal Mashaaheer from Hadhrat Anas Radhiallaahu `Anhu who said that Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Five things break a person’s fast, and nullifies Wudhoo: Lying, carrying tales, backbiting, lustful gazes and false oaths.”

 

Imaam Al-Jawraqaani Rahimahullaah after reporting this narration comments on it and says: “This is a false Hadeeth.” [i]

 

Imaam Ibn Al-Jawzi Rahimahullaah reports in Al-`Ilalul Mutanaahiyah Fil Ahaadeetil Waahiyah from  Hadhrat `Abdullaah Ibn `Abbaas Radhiallaahu `Anhumaa who said that Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Al-Hadath (minor ritual impurity) is of two types, Hadath of the tongue and Hadath of the private part, the Hadath of the tongue is the worse one of the two, and Wudhoo is required for both of them.”

 

Imaam Ibn Al-Jawzi Rahimahullaah then comments on this narration and says: “This narration is not authentic from Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam.” [ii]

 

Imaam an-Nawawi Rahimahullaah says in Al-Majmoo` Sharhul Muhadhdhab that Imaam Ibn Al-Mundhir has mentioned in his two books Al-Ashraaf and Al-Ijmaa`, and Imaam Ibn As-Sabbaagh as well (has mentioned): “The scholars have consensus that it is not obligatory to perform Wudhoo from speaking bad things, like backbiting, slander, lies and other (bad) things besides that.” [iii]

 

So while swearing is a bad thing, it will not break one’s Wudhoo.

Where’s the proof that u need wuzu to touch the Quran

 

Question:

 

Salaams…where’s the proof that u need wuzu to touch the Quran…sum ppl say its not Haraam u can touch without wuzu

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

 

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

Allaah says in Surah Al-Waaqi`ah, Aayah 79: “None may touch it except those who are pure.” [i]

 

Many of the Mufassireen have commented on this Aayah and said it refers to touching the Qur’aan, Imaam Al-Qurtubi Rahimahullaah mentions in his Tafseer Al-Jaami` Li-Ahkaamil Qur’aan: “It has been said that the meaning of “the book” is the Mus’haf (the Qur’aan) in our hands, and that is the most apparent (meaning).” [ii]

 

Imaam Maalik Rahimahullaah reports in his Muwatta that Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam sent a letter to (Hadhrat) `Amr Ibn Hazm (Radhiallaahu `Anhu), and in it was (written): “None may touch the Qur’aan except one who is pure.” [iii]

 

Imaam Al-Qurtubi Rahimahullaah mentions further in his Tafseer Al-Jaami` Li-Ahkaamil Qur’aan that (Hadhrat) `Abdullaah Ibn `Umar (Radhiallaahu `Anhu) said: “Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “You should not touch the Qur’aan except while you are pure.” [iv]

Why does passing wind break wudhoo

 

Question:

 

Wslm. Why does farting break wuzu that is associated with your hands, face, mouth, ears, nose, feet etc. What is the association between the two.

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

Passing wind breaks Wudhoo because Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam has told us so.

 

Imaam Al-Bukhaari Rahimahullaah reports that Rasoolullaah Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “The Salaah of a person who is in a state of Hadath is not accepted until he performs Wudhoo.” A man from Hadhramawt asked: “O Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallaahu `Anhu), what is Hadath?” He replied: “Passing wind silently or audibly.” – Saheeh Al-Bukhaari. [i]

 

The same applies to all the other nullifiers of Wudhoo, after all, what does bleeding, sleeping, vomiting a mouthful or even going to toilet have to do with a person washing his face, hands and feet?

 

The reason why it breaks Wudhoo is not important for us to know, otherwise Allaah would have mentioned it in the Qur’aan. Our duty is just to obey the commands of Allaah and His Rasool Sallallaahu `Alayhi Wa Sallam, and perform Wudhoo whether we understand the wisdom behind any law or not.

 

And Allaah knows best.

Ghusl in the shower

 

 

Question:

 

I would like to know if one can just perform the entire wusl in the shower. By just using the shower water and if this nullifies any part of the whusl. Eg pouring water 3 times over right shoulder etc. Does just turning in the shower complete ur whusl if the actions are meant as if you pouring the water. I have often seen old school people still taking a bucket and jug into shower with them. Clarify this. Are we doing something wrong.

 

Answer:

 

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.

Alhamdulillaahi was salaatu was salaamu `alaa Rasoolillaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa man waalaahu, wa ba`d:

 

Imaam Al-Margheenaanee Rahimahullaah says in Al-Hidaayah: “The compulsory actions of Ghusl are: Cleaning the mouth with water, cleaning the nose with water, and washing the entire body.” [i]

 

The purpose of pouring water is simply to ensure that the body is washed properly, but literally “pouring water” is not a condition for the validity of ghusl.

 

If a person pours water from a jug, stands under a shower or dives in the ocean, as long as his entire body is washed then he has fulfilled that obligatory action of ghusl.

 

Thus if a person turns thrice in the shower and his entire body is washed then he will have fulfilled the obligatory action of washing, and the Sunnah of washing thrice.

 

And Allaah knows best.
