Is Ihtijam Blood Damage Ablution (Wudu)? Read This!

Islamic Shariah News: Is Ihtijam Blood Damage Ablution (Wudu)? ~ Hi, reader! In this article I will explain the status of blood that comes out of the human body because he has ihtijam. Maybe we all already know, that what is meant by ihtijam is removing blood from the body in a certain way. The Prophet Muhammad did that. Medically, it also provides many health benefits for the body. But that can only be done by people who have normal blood counts. As for people who only have little blood or low blood, they cannot do that because it will endanger themselves. The question is, can this blood damage ablution (wudu)?

As always, before I answer the question above and speak more about is Ihtijam blood damage ablution (wudu), I will quote the hadith of the Prophet Muhammad relating to this. The hadith that I mean is as follows;

عَنْ أَنَسٍ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ : أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اِحْتَجَمَ وَصَلَّى وَلَمْ يَتَوَضَّأْ . أَخْرَجَهُ الدَّارُقُطْنِيُّ

From Anas bin Malik radliyallahu anhu, “That the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam ever ihtijam then he prayed and he did not intend.” The hadith was narrated by ad-Daruqthni.

All readers! If we observe the hadith above, we will understand that blood comes out of the body because ihtijam cannot cancel wudlu. In a number of previous articles, I have also explained that blood that can damage ablution (wudu) is blood coming out of two roads; front road (penis or vagina) and back road (anus).

Thus, if one day our hands are scratched by a knife or we fall from a vehicle, then there is blood coming out of our body, as long as the blood does not come out of the two roads that I mentioned earlier, then the blood cannot damage ablution (wudu). That is, the blood is not unclean. In the above hadith, it is explained, that on the day of the Prophet Muhammad ihtijam. This means that there is blood coming out of his body. After that, he immediately prayed without excessive ablution (wudu).

Another example is, maybe one day we see a small child who is learning to ride a bicycle. In general, when a young child learns to ride a bicycle he will fall. Usually there will be a wound in the leg and the wound bleeds. Or it could be that there is a man who is badly whisked or bearded and then the shaver he uses scratches the skin between the lips and nose or on the beard, so that there is blood coming out of the scratched skin. Based on the above hadith, the blood is not unclean.

That is a brief explanation of is Ihtijam blood damage ablution (wudu)? May be useful! Amen!
