Taharah from ritual impurity as

Q: What is the ruling on offering Salah (Prayer) without prior Taharah (ritual purification) from minor impurity?


A: According to the consensus of scholars, Salah is invalid, if done without prior ritual purification from major and minor ritual impurities, as Allah (Exalted be He) says, O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salât (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows The Prophet (peace be upon him) says, Salah is not accepted without Taharah. (Part No. 6; Page No. 190) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
