The Kinds of Water Used

Topic/Issue:32 - Water Mixed with Pure substances -- الماء الذي خالطه زعفران أو غيره من الأشياء الطاهرة
Agreement:This water is pure.
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
HanafiIt is pure and purifying (can be used for ablution), unless the attribute change is due to heating.Term water can still apply to this.
Malik, ShafiIt is pure but not purifying (can't be used for ablution)Water so mixed is not covered by the unqualified term water, but is described by things added such as 'the water of such and such thing'

Malik made a distinction between weak and strong mistures
  1. It is pure, but not purifying for purposes of wudu: majority of scholars
  2. It is pure and purifying: Abu Hanifa (unless changed due to heating)

Reason for Disagreement

  • Is this considered water or not?
