Performing Salaah With clothes Soiled With A Baby’s Vomit

Question

If my baby vomits on me can I read salah with n that clothes

Answer

If the baby vomited a mouthful, then the vomit is Al-Najasah Al-Ghalizah (extremely impure). Thus, if this vomit is equal to the amount of a Dirham (area equal to the recess of the palm; approximately the size of a R5 coin) or more, then Salaah in the same clothes is not permissible until the vomit’s corporeal form is not completely washed off from the clothes. If it is less than the amount of a Dirham, then it is permissible to pray in it; however, it is still preferable to wash off even this small amount before praying with those clothes.

وَأَمَّا الْقَيْءُ فَإِذَا كَانَ مِلْءَ الْفَمِ فَنَجِسٌ فَأَمَّا مَا دُونَهُ فَظَاهِرٌ عَلَى مَا هُوَ الْمُخْتَارُ مِنْ قَوْلِ أَبِي يُوسُفَ، وَفِي فَتَاوَى نَجْمِ الدِّينِ النَّسَفِيِّ: صَبِيٌّ ارْتَضَعَ ثُمَّ قَاءَ فَأَصَابَ ثِيَابَ الْأُمِّ، إنْ كَانَ مِلْءَ الْفَمِ فَنَجِسٌ، فَإِذَا زَادَ عَلَى قَدْرِ الدِّرْهَمِ مُنِعَ. وَرَوَى الْحَسَنُ عَنْ أَبِي حَنِيفَةَ – رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ – أَنَّهُ لَا يُمْنَعُ مَا لَمْ يَفْحُشْ لِأَنَّهُ لَمْ يَتَغَيَّرْ مِنْ كُلِّ وَجْهٍ، كَذَا فِي غَرِيبِ الرِّوَايَةِ لِأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ أَبِي حَنِيفَةَ وَهُوَ الصَّحِيحُ، وَمَا قَدَّمْنَاهُ فِي النَّوَاقِضِ عَنْ الْمُجْتَبِي وَغَيْرِهِ يَقْتَضِي طَهَارَةَ هَذَا الْقَيْءِ فَارْجِعْ إلَيْهِ (فتح القدىر ج1 ص204)

وَاخْتُلِفَ فِي كَوْنِ نَجَاسَةِ ‌الْقَيْءِ مُخَفَّفَةً أَوْ مُغَلَّظَةً وَاخْتَارَ صَاحِبُ الِاخْتِيَارِ وَكَثِيرٌ مِنْ الْمَشَايِخِ أَنْ تَكُونَ مُغَلَّظَةً، وَقَالُوا: كُلُّ مَا يَخْرُجُ مِنْ بَدَنِ الْإِنْسَانِ مُوجِبًا لِلتَّطْهِيرِ فَنَجَاسَةٌ غَلِيظَةٌ كَالْغَائِطِ وَالْبَوْلِ وَالدَّمِ وَالصَّدِيدِ وَالْقَيْءِ، وَلَا خِلَافَ فِيهِ (مجمع الانهر ج1 ص18)

صَبِيٌّ ارْتَضَعَ ثُمَّ قَاءَ فَأَصَابَ ثِيَابَ الْأُمِّ إنْ كَانَ مِلْءَ الْفَمِ فَنَجِسٌ، فَإِذَا زَادَ عَلَى قَدْرِ الدِّرْهَمِ مَنَعَ (رد المحتار ج1 ص309)
