CLEAN AND UNCLEAN WATER DEFINED

Water can be divided into 2 categories:

1. CLEAN Water which is permissible for Wudhuo;

2. UNCLEAN water, which is not permissible for Wudhu.

WHAT CAN BE CALLED WATER:

Mutlaq Water – Natural water such as Rain water, Sea water
and altered water because of its being in a place for a long
time, like a pond or lake and is mixed with algae, tree leaves etc., which cannot be removed from it.

Water even though mixed with clean elements such as
soap, flour or salt etc. to some extent, can still be called
water.

CLEAN WATER

A large quantity of water, which is equal to or more than
2 Qullas.(1 Qulla is equivalent to about 95.62 liters) This water, even if it is mixed with impure substances, but does not change its taste, color or odor, is considered clean water.

UNCLEAN WATER:

If any impurities are mixed with a small quantity of water,
which is less than 2 Qullas,(1 Qulla is equivalent to about 95.62 liters) then this water is considered unclean, regardless of whether or not there is a relative
change in taste, color or odor of the water.

If any of the impurities are combined with a large quantity
of water – 2 Qullas or more, but the taste, color or odor of
water is already changed or altered.
