Mazi problem

Q: I have 2 questions regarding performing Umrah and having Mazi leaking out and wearing the tissue.​

1. After visiting the bathroom I wrap a tissue around my private part (I usually tie a rubber band or string to keep tissue there) to ensure any drops that come out, if any, does not touch my clothes. I also wear a tissue sometimes during the day as I see mazi coming out at different times.

a. Whilst in ihraam and performing umrah if mazi comes out and touches the ihraam what must be done? (To be honest if mazi does come out, it is usually a very very small amount)

b. Is it permissible to wear the tissue after visiting the bathroom whilst wearing ihraam? (not whilst performing umrah but just wearing the ihraam)(I usually tie a rubber band or string to keep tissue there).


2. The other day I was given the opportunity of leading the Asr SalaahBefore I went to the Salaah room I stopped at the bathroom to wash my Private Area to ensure that there is no Mazi present etc. After performing salaah I went back to the bathroom to ensure no mazi or any fluid has come out, and did not see any fluid. However I did see something very small (like a dot) inside my private part which could’ve been toilet paper(from maybe earlier on in the day) or even a thread from my underwear or something else. I can’t be too sure but it was very small or tiny and was solid looking not liquid. Please advise if this, what I had seen after performing salaah, affects my salaah in any way?




a). The soiled area can be washed and used thereafter

b). Yes.

2. There is no problem


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