Ruling on vomit

Q: Is the vomit of young and old people regarded as Najis (ritually impure)? Should one's clothes or anything else be washed if vomit has fallen on them? Does vomit invalidate Wudu' (ablution)? Please give us the ruling on these points.

A: Vomit is Najis, whether it is the vomit of a young or old person. The food taken into the stomach becomes a decomposed substance, more like stool and blood. If it falls on clothes or anything else, it has to be washed with water, along with rubbing and squeezing, until the traces of Najasah (ritual impurity) disappear completely and the affected area is clean. Vomit invalidates Wudu' if it is a large amount, a mouthful or more. A small amount of vomit does not invalidate Wudu'.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
