Is the dirt found in the corner of the eye napaak

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1- Is the liquid substance which collects in the corner of the eye in the mornings and resembles pus najis?

2- If the liquid substance is not najis, I have the following question: I searched wikipedia and it says in some eye diseases the liquid also contains pus. What if we are not sure that we have the mentioned diseases or we are not sure that this liquid contains pus?



1. No. It is not napaak.

2. If there is pain in the eye which is caused through an infection and thereafter water comes out, then in this case the water will be napaak.

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