He Prayed and Forgot He Was Impure | Shaykh al-Uthaymīn
A man slept, then woke up and prayed Fajr. After the Fajr prayer he realized that he was impure, requiring a ghusl bath. What is the validity of this prayer?
Shaykh Muhammad bin Sālih al-Uthaymīn:
Anyone who prays then afterward finds that they are ritually impure – be it minor or major – then it is required of them to purify themselves from the defilement and repeat the prayer. This is because the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
‘Allah does not accept prayer without purification.’
