Drop of impurity on one’s clothing

Q: If a person had already prays his salaah, then he goes in to the toilet but when he sits to do toilet he see on his underwear white water liquid drop but the liquid drop is not thick. So should he take a bath or wash it and should he offer salaah again or not?


A: If he is not sure whether the drop is semen or urine, etc. and similarly he is not sure when the drop had come on his underwear, then he does not have to repeat his previous Salaah nor make ghusal. However he should wash that portion of his underwear.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

وفي السراج لو وجد في ثوبه نجاسة مغلظة أكثر من قدر الدرهم ولم يعلم بالإصابة لم يعد شيئا بالإجماع وهو الأصح ا هـ قلت وهذا يشمل الدم فيقتضي أن الأصح عدم الإعادة مطلقا تأمل (رد المحتار 1/219)
