If a Man Finishes Praying and Then Remembers that He Never had Wudoo, Does he Repeat the Prayer or Not?

Questioner: If a man finishes praying and then remembers that he never had wudoo, does he repeat the prayer or not?

Al-Albaani: [Yes], he repeats it.

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 428.

Praying Having Performed Tayammum and then During the Prayer Water Becomes Available?

A man is praying having performed dry-ablution [tayammum], and then during the prayer water becomes available, what should he do?

Al-Albaani: He cuts off his prayer, and uses the water [to perform wudoo].

Questioner: Okay, what if he has given the tasleem and then water becomes available? After he had given the tasleem? [i.e., after he has completed his prayer?]

Al-Albaani: Khalaas

Questioner: Sorry?

Al-Albaani: Thus is the case judged concerning which you both did inquire. His prayer is correct, but he must perform wudoo for the next one.

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 438.

Prisoners in Solitary Confinement Performing Dry-Ablution [Tayammum]

Some prisoners, O Shaikh of ours, are put in special cells, ya’nee, due to their particular circumstances, and these cells are about a metre and a half by a metre and a half. They’re not allowed to leave them at all, ya’nee, they stay in them because they are under suspicion or are dangerous from a political standpoint or other such things, so they eat, drink and urinate—may Allaah honour you—in them, sometimes they are given water [but] only a very little so they can’t perform ablution [wudoo]. So should they perform dry-ablution [tayammum] using the wall, for example, as some people do?

Al-Albaani: Definitely, he must do that since he can’t perform wudoo.

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 420.

When a Person Forgets to Say Allaah’s Name when Performing Wudoo and Remembers at the End

If a person remembers to say, ‘Bismillaah,’ at the end of the wudoo [having forgotten to say it before he started], what must he do?

Al-Albaani: Nothing, Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error.” [2:286]

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 51.

Let Whoever Eats Meat Perform Ablution [wudoo]

مَنْ أَكَلَ لَحْمًا فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ

Al-Qaasim the freed slave of Mu’aawiyah said, “I entered Damascus and saw a group of people who had gathered and there was a Shaikh speaking to them. So I said, ‘Who is that?’ They said, ‘Sahl ibn Handhaliyyah.’ So I heard him say, ‘I heard the Messenger of Allaah صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ say, ‘Let whoever eats meat perform ablution [wudoo].’’”

Shaikh al-Albaani said, “The matter mentioned in the hadith is a recommendation except if [that which is eaten] is camel meat, since then it is obligatory, due to the fact that differentiating between it and other meat has been established [in a hadith]. For they asked him about performing ablution after [eating] camel meat and he replied, “Perform ablution.” And [they asked him about performing ablution after eating] sheep’s meat, and he replied, “If you want.” Reported by Muslim and others.”
