Unclean (an-Najaasah) that is forgiven ~ Hi readers! Al-Hamdulillah we can meet again in this blog to know more about the view of Islamic law about everyday life. Previously I wanted to say an apology because in the last few days I can not write articles. There are several reasons why, especially since I am now in my home country, Indonesia. I have completed my studies at al-Azhar University, Cairo, Egypt.

Straight to! In the previous article, I have already presented the exposure of the unclean (an-Najaasah) with various kinds. In this article, I will give you a little exposure to the odious sizes being forgiven. As Muslims we have to know about this because not all unclean can prevent us from worship; there is an unclean type (an-Najaasah) that is excused.

For example, the problems we can encounter in everyday life are rainwater. In general, the rainwater law is sacred because it is revealed by Allah directly from above. But the problem is if the water has reached the ground let alone rainwater puddle. Questions arise; how is the law in view of Islam?

While the small size of the unclean is considered to be lightened, the attached to the shirt is not more than ¼ (quarter) of the shirt. While the unclean kalua is attached to the body, its size is not more than ¼ a quarter of the affected limbs, such as the hands or feet; not exceeding ¼ (quarter) of the hand and not exceeding ¼ (quarter) of the foot.
