(50) p. 9 "Aboo Hurairah did not see anything wrong in a drop or two
of blood ..." Reported by Ibn Abee Shaibah in his Musannaf and
its isnaad is weak due to Shareek ibn Abdillaah al-Qaadee
who is daeef due to his weak memory. (The position that blood is
taahir and does not break wudoo is the position of al-Bukhaaree
and Ibn Hazm).
(52) That normal blood, blood of animals and blood of menstruation are all
This is incorrect due to two reasons:
That there is no proof for this from the Book or Sunnah and
the principle is that things are pure unless declared impure in a text.
That it contradicts what is established in the Sunnah.
- As for the blood of humans then that is shown to be pure by the
hadeeth of the Ansaaree who prayed at night and was struck by arrows
and continued praying even though his blood flowed. [Reported in
muallaq form by al-Bukhaaree and connected by Ahmad and others
Saheeh Abee Daawood, 193]
- As for the blood of animals then that is also pure as shown by
the authentic narration that Ibn Masood some camels and ??? became
smeared with their blood and excrement then the
Iqaamah was given and he prayed without making
- Reported by Abdur-Razzaaq in his musannaf (1/125), Ibn
Abee Shaibah (1/392) and at-Tabaraanee in al-Mujamul-Kabeer
9/283) with Saheeh isnaad from him.
(52) His making distinction between a small and a large amount of
This has no proof from the sunnah rather it is negated by the
hadeeth of the Ansaaree. The Athar from Aboo Hurairah is
Daeef as has preceded. (This distinction is rebutted by Ibn Hazm
in al-Muhallaa and by Ibnul-Arabee and al-Qurtubee in their
(53) "Vomiting of a person ... there is agreement amongst the
scholars ..." He does not mention any proof.
Scholars are not agreed in that that the vomit of a muslim is pure is
the saying of Ibn Hazm (al-muhallaa, 1/183), ash-Shawkaanee in
ad-Dururul-Bahiyyah and Saddeeq Hasan Khaan in his Sharh (1/18-20).
but a small amount of vomit ... and .... are overlooked."
He doesnt bring any proof.
(54) p. 12 "Alcohol... some scholars say that it is pure."
In order that their saying should not be regarded as unimportant their names
should be mentioned, amongst them are,
- Rabeeah ibn Abee Abdir-Rahmaan, known
as Rabeeatur-Raee, al-Haafiz says of him in at-Tahdheeb,"He met some of the Sahaabah and greater
taabieen, and he gave Fatwaas in al-Madeenah, where the
people used to turn to him, and his circle was attended by forty men wearing
imaamah and Maalik learnt from him.
- al-Laith ibn Sad al-Misree, al-Faqeeh, the
famous imaam, the great scholars acknowledged his excellence amongst
them Imaam Maalik in the letter which he wrote to him. And
ash-Shaafiee said of him, "He was a greater scholar than Maalik,
but his companions did not carry his renown.
- Ismaaeel ibn Yahyaa al-Muzaanee, companion of Imaam
ash-Shaafiee. He was a mujtahid imaam.
And this is the position of many other scholars of later times from Baghdaad
and other towns they hold that alcohol is pure and only drinking
it is what is forbidden (see Tafseerul-Qurtubee, 6/88).
(55) p 16 3rd paragraph, "If a person finishes the Prayer
Its proof is the hadeeth of Aboo Saeed al-Khudree, "That
while Allaahs Messenger, sallallaahu alaihi wa sallaam, was
praying with his Companions he suddenly took off his shoes and placed
them on his left so when the people saw that they threw off their shoes,
so when the Prophet, sallallaahu alaihi wa sallaam, finished his
prayer he said, "Why did you throw off your shoes?" They said,
"We saw you throw off your shoes so we threw our shoes off." So
Allaahs Messenger, sallallaahu alaihi wa sallaam, said,
"Indeed Jibreel Alaihis-Salaam, came to me and informed me that
my shoes contained impurity. And he said, "When one of you comes to the
mosque then let him look, and if he finds any impurity or filth on his shoes,
then let him wipe it and pray in them." Reported by Ahmad, Aboo Daawood
and others with a saheeh isnaad, Al-Irwaa, 284.
(56) p. 17 2nd paragraph "This is related by the
group" the group meaning, al-Bukhaaree, Muslim,
Aboo Daawood, at-Tirmidhee, an-Nasaaee and Ibn Maajah.
