Suffers from Anal Discharges
Fatwa No: 399259

Question

I have previously mentioned how I have uncobtrolllable anal discharges. My question is when I wash myself or sweat and the discharge mixes with this water or sweat am I still allowed to pray in the same clothes? I would like you to include the Maliki opinion as well.
Also if when performing istinjaa I make water enter the penis intentionally will my fast be nullified?
Thank you

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  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

According to the view of the majority of the scholars, you must put a pad and the like in order to prevent the spread of impurity into your clothes.

If this impurity is mixed with water or sweat, then they become impure.

According to the view of the Maaliki School, you do not have to perform Istinjaa’ from these discharges (excrements) since it is repeated at least once a day. Rather, this is forgiven according to them, and there is no harm on you in acting according to this view.

According to the view of the Maaliki School, if the clothes are stained with this impurity, this is also forgiven. However, according to the view of the majority of the scholars, you must purify these clothes by washing them with water until the effect of that impurity is removed.

The fasting is not invalidated by deliberately making water enter the penis.

Allah knows best.
