Dear Mufti , Assalaamualaikum, Concerning Fatwah #22910 , if a person masturbates and doesnt perform ghusl, what about his Salaah after a couple of days ? Will they be accepted ? Thanks and jazakallah
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
If a person masturbates, his Salah will not be accepted until he performs Ghusl.
The difference between Fasts and Salah from this aspect is that one of the pre-requisites of Salah is tahaarah(bodily purity). This is not a pre-requisite of fasting.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
