Advice of Scholars - TAHÂRAT FROM HADAS

There are two kinds of tahârat from hadas:

1 - Performance of an ablution by a person who does not have an ablution.

2 - Performance of a ghusl by a person who does not have a ghusl.

Wudû means ablution; tawaddî means to perform an ablution; ghasl means to wash something; ightisâl means to perform a ghusl ablution, and ghusl means the ablution of ghusl (in Arabic). He who does not have an ablution is called muhdis. He who does not have a ghusl ablution is called junub.

It is written in the book Halabî-yi saghîr: “There are fards, sunnats, adabs, and forbidden things in an abdast (ablution). If a person performs namâz without an ablution though he does not have a good excuse for doing so and though he knows that he does not have an ablution, he becomes a disbeliever. He who loses his ablution while performing namâz, performs the salâm (Assalam-u alaikum wa rahmat-ullah) to one side right away and stops his namâz. Re-making an ablution before the prescribed time period is over, he begins the namâz again. ” In Malikî madhhab, his namâz will not be nullified and he will become owner of an excuse in that moment.
