dear brothers, i have an aquarium in
my room and lately after one fish died i
kept it there for a while. Does the
presence of a dead creature (fish) affect
the purity of my room? I have prayed
salah during that state, are they ok?


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

The death of the fish does not affect the
purity of the room. Moreover, the dead
fish is pure and not impure as the
Prophet said: "There are two dead
animals that are lawful for us (to eat):
they are fish and locust, and there are
two bloods that are lawful for us (to
eat): they are the liver and the
spleen." [Ahmad and Ibn Maajah]

Besides, Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen
was asked: “Is the dead fish in a river,
aquarium or pond pure?, and he
answered: “The saying of the Prophet
about performing ablution with sea
water: ''Its water purifies, and its dead
are lawful to eat.” [Abu Daawood and
An-Nasaa'ee], includes all kinds of dead
animals that live in water. So, any
creature that only lives in water, if it is
dead it is pure, this is what appears
from the Hadeeth, whether this is in a
pond, or in a river or in a spring, or
anywhere else….”

Dear brother, we notice from you
questions that you are afflicted with
whispers about purity, so we advise you
to fear Allah and avoid such whispers as
it is a widespread evil. You should know
that, in principle, all things are pure,
and not impure. If someone opens the
doors of whispers to himself, it may be
difficult for him to close it, so you
should fear Allah.

Allah Knows best.
