Prayers & Duties >> Taharah (Purity)

Question # : 165362

bangladesh

I sleep on a mattress which is impure because of urine and semen. So far I know, if I sleep on this mattress without washing then I have to take shower before praying. The mattress is made of cloth and cotton. If I flip the mattress to its opposite side and sleep on it, is it OK? Should I take shower in such case?

(Fatwa: 56/24/L=01/1440)



 



If the mattress is wet and the mark of impurity appears on body and cloth due to sleeping then it is mandatory to wash that particular place where the impurity is smeared on the body or cloth, but it is not mandatory to have bath. And in case of turning the mattress the ruling is same that if the mark of impurity is on the other side and the effect of impurity is felt on body or clothes due to sleeping on it then it is mandatory to wash that place where the impurity is smeared, but it is not mandatory to bathe. And if the impurity does not appear on the other side or the impurity is dried then due to sleeping on it you will not have to wash.

إذا نام الرجل على فراش فأصابه مني ويبس ، فعرق ارجل وابتل الفراش من عرقه إن لم يظهر أثر البلل في بدنه لا ينجس وإن كان العرق كثيراً حتى ابتل الفراش ثم أصاب جلل الفراش جسده فظهر أثره في جسده يتنجس بدنه هنديه ، كتاب الطهارة، باب الطهارة من الأنجاس، 1/102، اشرفي جديد.
