What Is Ad-Da'watus-Salafiyyah?

Shaikh Saalih bin 'Abdil-'Azeez Aali Shaikh said,

"There is no such thing as ”study time” for the student of knowledge! This is because all of his time is spent in seeking knowledge. In the morning and in the evening, his mind is preoccupied with the various issues of knowledge." ~ Al-Manhajiyyah fee Talabil-'Ilm"

Does The Sun Cleanse Clothing From Urine?

Does The Sun Cleanse Clothing From Urine? And The Ruling Of Praying In Such Clothing.

Question: I have a small child who I carry and sometimes they urinate on my clothing. I then spread this clothing in the sun until it dries and there after perform my prayers in them. Is this permissible or not?

Answer: As for the urine of a male infant who does bot eat solids, it is suffice to saturate area with water due to the narration of Umm Qais Bint Mushin. She had brought a young son of hers who was not yet feeding on solids to the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa Sallam, so he Sallallahu alayhi wa Sallam placed him in his lap. The child then urinated upon his clothing so he called for water, saturated the affected area and he did not wash it. The authenticity of this hadeeth is agreed upon (Al-Bukaari and Muslim). What is intended by "Saturating" is that the affected area is to be flooded with water even if this does nor remove the urine completely and it is not necessary to wring it. It is deduced from this that if the male child started to feed on solids, then it is necessary to wash away his urine. As for the urine of a female infant, it should be washed away due to the narration of Lubabah Bint Al-Haarith. She said:

"Al-Hussain Ibn 'Ali was in the lap of the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu alayhi wa Sallam and he urinated upon him. So O said: "I wear another garment and give me your Izaar, so that I may wash it." He Sallallahu alayhi wa Sallam replied:

"Rather the urine of a female child is washed away and that of a male child saturated with water."

Narrated by Abu Dawood. This is the guidance of the Messenegr Sallallahu alayhi wa Sallam concerning the urine of a male and female infant. So from this, it is known that what the questioner has mentioned of his drying the garments in them that the sun does not clean them. The prayer in them before they have been cleansed as mentioned is not correct.
