Category: What Is Janabah
What Is Janabah ~ The state of janabah renders Muslims unfit for the performance of ritual duties, such as prayer, until they purify themselves through complete ablution (ghusl).
Janaba (Arabic: جَنابَة) is a jurisprudential term meaning a state of being non-tahir which is a result of discharging semen or sexual intercourse that involves penetration. The person who is in this state is called “junub” (Arabic: جُنُب). Janaba is a al-hadath al-akbar. According to Islamic jurisprudence, performing some acts of worships such as prayer, fasting, hajj, and entering mosque is prohibited.
By performing ghusl al-janaba one comes out of this state.
