▪️What happens when someone prays with Najaasah (impurity), and only comes to realise this after the prayer is complete?▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

A man offered Fajr Salaah, and after completing the prayer he remembered there was Najaasah (impurity) on him.

📝 Answer:

If the Najaasah was on his clothes and he didn’t remember this until the prayer was complete, the prayer is still valid; just like when Jibreel informed the prophet ﷺ that his slippers had Najaasah, he ﷺ simply took them off and continued praying.

But if he was in the state of major ritual impurity and saw traces of janaabah (semen), he has to perform ghusl and repeat the prayer again.
