female/male issue: purity is important for validity of salah

Q: A woman sees some liquids (yellow color) in her underware while she is not in period. This frequently happens to her and causes a real difficulty for praying specially outside the home and as you know women in this country go out of their home frequently.

1) What is the judgment on these liquids (pure or inpure)

2) should she change the underwar every time!?

3)What is the status of her wudu?
4)Also, can a woman while doing wudu wipe over her hijab instead of her hair?

Answers:

A1) The secretion of this yellow fluid would only invalidate whudu.

A2) This yellowish substance is impure.

Scenario:

A practical scenario for those that follow the ayah: Allah loves those that adhere to purity. Also commenting on the sisters claim: ‘This frequently happens to her and causes a real difficulty for praying specially outside the home and as you know women in this country go out of their home frequently,’ the following is being advocated.

One can place a light padding or some type of fabric/tissue that can be removed each time she observes the yellowness. Prior to salah, merely go and observe if the yellow secretion has occurred or not. Should a secretion have taken place, throw the stained tissue paper, wash the soiled area and merely place a fresh tissue. Make a fresh whudu and continue with the salah of the moment/time. One does not have to have their undergarments soiled each time it is worn. This rule could well apply for men that may also have similar occurrences.

A3) Invalid.  Needs to be made up. Ghusal remains intact, just whudu needs to be re-done.

A4) she must wipe over the actual hair as the Quran instructs us to do so. Due to the serious nature of salah, Quran should be given priority over the preference of other opinions relating to this matter. This would not only take you out of the realm as it relates to difference of opinion. This is the correct view of all major scholars.

Allah Certainly Knows Best.
