Question

Asalamu alikum , Basically I have come
across this Hadith from Sunan Abu Dawud,
book 1, Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah),
Number 66 and 67 about using a well which
contain dead dogs, mensurated clothes,
excrement of people. www.iiu.edu.my/
deed/hadith/abudawood/001_sat.html Please
could you explain, I know I should only
concern myself with matters that concern
me, however it was raised in an Islamic
forum online by a non muslim, to which I
am difficulty understanding JazakAllah khair

Answer

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.
It might be that you are referring to the
Hadeeth that is narrated by Abu Sa’eed Al-
Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, that
the Prophet was asked: "Can we perform
ablution out of the well of Budhaa'ah, which
is a well into which women’s menstrual rags,
dead dogs and stinking things were thrown?

He replied: ''Water is pure and it is not
rendered impure by anything.” [Abu
Daawood, At-Tirmithi, and An-Nasaa’ee]
We do not understand what is the problem
or the ambiguity about this narration. If you
mean how one can perform ablution from
this well into which those things are thrown,
then the answer is that since the water is a
huge quantity and none of its three
characteristics (i.e. smell, taste and colour)
has changed because of what is thrown into
it, then it remains as it is which means that
it is pure. Al-Bayhaqui and some other
Imaams stated that the well of
Budhaa'ah contains much water and it is so
large that its water does not change because
of what is thrown into it. Imaam Abu
Daawood said that he saw the well as it
was at the time of the Prophet and he
found that its width is 6 cubits long, which
means more than three meters and a half,
and it is wide and contains much water.
Since this well is as described, then it is not
wise to restrict its use and prevent people
from using its water while being most in
need for its water as long as its
characteristics remained the same. However,
if one of its characteristics changes, then it
is impure according to the consensus of all
the scholars and it is not permissible
to use it. The Islamic Law advocates avoiding
and purifying from impurities, as Allah Says
to His Prophet (what means): {And your
clothing purify.}[Quran 74:4]
Even though, the Islamic Law did not give
any room for whispers about purity. In
principle all things are pure unless it is
proven that they became impure.

Allah Knows best.
