Noticed impurity on clothes after salaah

Fatwaa ID: 219


Salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh,

I pray everyone on the askimam team is well, and may allah shower his mercy and blessings upon you all. Ameen 

I have written my situation then placed my question, underneath the scenario.

I had a bad stomach between dhuhr and asr. I tried to hold myself back from using the toilet as I was at college. To my knowledge, I had wudhu, from before asr till I arrived home about 30 minutes before isha’.

I had prayed asr, maghrib, Isha and witr,  not knowing if any najasah was present (there was no smell throughout the evening).

When I got home (30 minutes before isha) I used the toilet. When I did so, I didn’t notice anything. however, I wasn’t actively looking either, because it didn’t come to my mind to check at that time.

When I got home after isha salah, and was changing into my night clothes, I noticed streaks of faeces/excrement on my underwear/boxers.

Q. Would I have to make up my prayers from Asr till Isha? or would this be considered doubt?

 Jazak Allahu Khaira.


In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Brother in Islam,

You state that you did not notice anything when you used the toilet before ‘Ishaa. Perhaps the impurity came on to your clothes at this point after you used the toilet. To be on the safe side, we advise you to repeat the ‘Ishaa salaah.

And Allaah Ta’aala Knows Best.
