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.

Performing Ghusl While Injured ǀ And an Encouragement to Copy and Paste Articles to Spread them as Much as Possible

Readers are positively encouraged to help spread the works of Al-Albaani and other great Shaikhs by taking any and all articles in their entirety from both and and to copy and paste them wherever they can so as to reach as wide an audience as possible, just kindly include a link back to the original article.

Host: The questioner asks, ‘A man whose finger is injured does ghusl due to having been in a state of sexual impurity [Janaabah], [and so when he had a bath] he did not put water on the injured finger or water didn’t reach it. After a few days he was ok and his finger was better, does he have to repeat the ghusl or not?’

Al-Albaani: No.

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 529.

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.

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.

Performing Dry-Ablution [Tayammum] in Prison

Regarding dry-ablution [tayammum], sometimes a person might, for example, be in prison, is it allowed to perform tayammum on the walls?

Al-Albaani: Of course.

Al-Hudaa wan-Noor, 13.

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.”
