As salaamu Alaikum,
I want to know about the purification of utensils used for cooking. In our home we have some utensils made of iron (I guess). The thing is that after cooking something in it, my mother washes it with soap and water. But I noticed that even after washing it with soap and water, and then multiple times with water, there seems to be some oily thing that keeps floating when you put water in the utensil. I think if it was oil from cooking, then it would have definitely been cleaned after using soap. But it does not go even after repeated washing. It could be something coming off from the utensil itself. Problem is my family sometimes cook many doubtful items in it. And then cook halal food for me in the same utensils. I do not want to Consume anything haram or doubtful. Please tell me will the utensils be paak after washing it with soap and water? Will my halal food become doubtful if cooked in it?
Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
Once it has been washed properly with soap and water and all the previous matter in the utensil has been washed out thoroughly, then it is considered to be clean for usage. If any doubtful food has been cooked in it, then you can wash it three times properly and then use it.
And Allah Knows best
