Q: I used a leather Moza and it needed to be rinsed due to getting wet with dirty water. After rinsing it I removed it and found it to be damp on the inner side near the seems. I’ve read that Moza need to be water proof but I see the stitches don’t allow that.
- Can this Moza still be used as all leather moza have stitches?
- Do I have to repeat all the Salaah that were performed after making masa in the Moza?
- If Salaah needs to be repeated, what must I do about those who read Salaah behind me as I don’t know who some of them were?
- If the mozah does not have any holes and is secure from all sides, then you may continue using it.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
