Posted on

The third important point about “does cat saliva break wudu?” what I’m going to explain now is a specific answer. So, I really hope you guys read the explanation below very well.

Before I give you a specific answer to that question (does cat saliva break wudu?), firstly, I will explain two important things so that you can understand the main topic in this discussion. Two important things I mean are as follows:

  1. Six things that break wudu in Islam.
  2. Is cat saliva unclean?

Six Things That Break Wudu in Islam

In simple terms, I want to say that there are six things that can break wudu:

One: if something comes out of two holes: the front hole (penis and vagina) and the back hole (anus).

We can find this explanation in the Quranic verse below:

يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْٓا اِذَا قُمْتُمْ اِلَى الصَّلٰوةِ فَاغْسِلُوْا وُجُوْهَكُمْ وَاَيْدِيَكُمْ اِلَى الْمَرَافِقِ وَامْسَحُوْا بِرُءُوْسِكُمْ وَاَرْجُلَكُمْ اِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِۗ وَاِنْ كُنْتُمْ جُنُبًا فَاطَّهَّرُوْاۗ وَاِنْ كُنْتُمْ مَّرْضٰٓى اَوْ عَلٰى سَفَرٍ اَوْ جَاۤءَ اَحَدٌ مِّنْكُمْ مِّنَ الْغَاۤىِٕطِ اَوْ لٰمَسْتُمُ النِّسَاۤءَ فَلَمْ تَجِدُوْا مَاۤءً فَتَيَمَّمُوْا صَعِيْدًا طَيِّبًا فَامْسَحُوْا بِوُجُوْهِكُمْ وَاَيْدِيْكُمْ مِّنْهُ ۗمَا يُرِيْدُ اللّٰهُ لِيَجْعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّنْ حَرَجٍ وَّلٰكِنْ يُّرِيْدُ لِيُطَهِّرَكُمْ وَلِيُتِمَّ نِعْمَتَهٗ عَلَيْكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُوْنَ

O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles. And if you are in a state of janabah, then purify yourselves. But if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and do not find water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and hands with it. Allah does not intend to make difficulty for you, but He intends to purify you and complete His favor upon you that you may be grateful. (Al-Maidah: 6).

Two: loss of mind due to sleep, madness, and so on.

We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : الْعَيْنُ وِكَاءُ السَّهِ فَإِذَا نَامَتِ الْعَيْنَانِ اِسْتَطْلَقَ الْوِكَاءُ . رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ وَالطَّبْرَانِيُّ وَزَادَ : وَ مَنْ نَامَ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ

From Mu’awiyah radiyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah sallallhu alaihi wa sallam said, “The eye is the anal cord. If two eyes have slept then the string will be untied.” The hadith was narrated by Ahmad and ath-Thabrani. He (ath-Thabrani) added (the hadith editor), “Whoever has been sleeping, let him perform wudu.”

Three: if the skin of a man and a woman who is not a mahram touch each other without a barrier.

We can find this explanation in the following Quranic verse:

أَوْ لَامَسْتُمُ النِّسَاءَ

Or you touch a girl. (Al-Maidah: 6).

Four: touching the human penis, vagina, or anus using the palms of the hands or the inside of the fingers.

We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

مَنْ مَسَّ ذَكَرَهُ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ

Whoever holds his penis, let him perform wudu.

Five: touching unclean objects, such as urine, feces, and so on.

Six: vomiting and nosebleeds.

We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : مَنْ أَصَابَهُ قَيْءٌ , أَوْ رُعَافٌ , أَوْ قَلَسٌ , أَوْ مَذْيٌ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ , ثُمَّ لْيَبْنِ عَلَى صَلَاتِهِ وَهُوَ لَا يَتَكَلَّمُ . أَخْرَجَهُ اِبْنُ مَاجَهْ

From Aisha radiyallahu anha, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam has said, “Whoever is exposed to vomiting, nosebleeds (blood coming from the nose), qalas (fluid that comes from the throat that fills the mouth or other things but it is not vomit) or madhiy, then he should perform wudu and then continue his prayer as long as he does not speak.” This hadith was narrated by Ibn Majah.

Is Cat Saliva Unclean?

Now I will explain to you about “is cat saliva unclean?”. I will quote a hadith about animal saliva which is permissible for Muslims to eat or the saliva of a clean animal. The hadith I mean is as follows:

عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ خَارِجَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : خَطَبَنَا رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِمِنَى وَهُوَ عَلَى رَاحِلَتِهِ وَلُعَابُهَا يَسِيْلُ عَلَى كَتِفِيْ . أَخْرَجَهُ أَحْمَدُ وَالتِّرْمِذِيُّ

From Umar bin Kharijah radiyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam once addressed us in Mina. He was on top of the animal that became his vehicle. The animal’s saliva dripped down my shoulder.” The hadith was narrated by Ahmad and at-Tirmidhi.

All readers! In the above hadith it is explained that the saliva of animals whose meat is permissible to eat is clean. What is meant by animals whose meat can be eaten are clean animals. The legal status of the saliva also includes the law of sweat. That is with a note that the fluid does not come from the stomach, it may come from the skin or mouth.

Now, if you ask me, “is cat saliva unclean?”, the answer is “No.” The reason is because the cat’s body is clean as I explained earlier.

Now, if you ask me, “does cat saliva break wudu?”, the answer is “No, because cat saliva is holy, not unclean.” That’s the answer.

All readers! That’s a brief explanation of “does cat saliva break wudu?” and some important things about it. Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!

I think that’s enough for this article. May be useful. Amen.
