Touching things by a Junub before performing Ghusl
The seventh question of Fatwa no.
Is it permissible for a woman and her husband after having conjugal intercourse to touch anything before taking Ghusl (ritual bath)? In such a case, does whatever they touch become Najis (impure)?
All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions.
Yes, it is permissible for someone who is Junub (in a state of major ritual impurity), whether man or woman, to touch different things like clothes, plates, pots, etc before taking Ghusl (ritual bath). A Junub person is not Najis and so nothing is defiled by their touch. The same is true of menstruating and postpartum women. Their body and sweat are Tahir (pure). (Part No. 5; Page No. 378) The things which they touch with their hands also remain pure. Only the discharged blood is Najis (impure).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
