is the ruling on performing Wudu’ (ablution) with usurped water or offering Salah (Prayer) in a usurped garment? What is the difference between this and performing Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) with ill-gotten money?
All praise is due to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, and Companions.
Usurpation is Haram (prohibited) by the Ijma’ (consensus) of Muslims because it is one form of oppression and oppression is darkness on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever usurps water and makes Wudu’ with it, or a garment and performs Salah with it, or money and uses it to perform Hajj; their Wudu’, Salah, and Hajj are valid according to the more correct of the two opinions of scholars. But it is a must that whoever has committed any of these wrongs repents to Allah of it.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
