The man who janāba afflicts in a cold land

875- عَنِ ابْنِ جُرَيْجٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ قُلْتُ لِعَطَاءٍ‏:‏ هَلْ لاِمْرِئٍ بِأَرْضٍ بَارِدَةٍ بِالشَّامِ رُخْصَةٌ فِي أَنْ لاَ يُنَقِّيَ وَلاَ يُسْبِغَ الْوُضُوءَ‏؟‏ قَالَ‏:‏ لاَ‏.‏


875 – Ibn Jurayj said: I said to ʿAṭā: Is there a dispensation for the man in the cold land in Syria to not cleanse and not thoroughly perform the wuḍū?  

He said: No.


876- عَنْ مَعْمَرٍ، عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، قَالَ‏:‏ جَاءَ أَهْلُ الطَّائِفِ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، فَشَكَوْا إِلَيْهِ الْبَرْدَ وَسَأَلُوهُ عَنْ غُسْلِ الْجَنَابَةِ، فَقَالَ‏:‏ أَمَّا أَنَا فَإِنِّي أُفِيضُ عَلَى رَأْسِي ثَلاَثًا‏.‏


876 – Maʿmar from Qatāda.  He said: The people of Ṭā’if came to the Prophet صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ and complained to him of the cold, and they asked him about the ghusl of janāba.  

So he said: As to me, I pour (the water) upon my head thrice.


877- عَبْدُ الرَّزَّاقِ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ الثَّوْرِيَّ يَقُولُ‏:‏ أَجْمَعُوا أَنَّ الرَّجُلَ يَكُونُ فِي أَرْضٍ بَارِدَةٍ فَأَجْنَبَ فَخَشِيَ عَلَى نَفْسِهِ الْمَوْتَ يَتَيَمَّمُ وَكَانَ بِمَنْزِلَةِ الْمَرِيضِ‏.‏


877 – ʿAbd al-Razzāq said: I heard al-Thawrī saying: They concur that the man who is in the cold land and becomes junub, and he fears death for himself, he does tayammum and he has the status of the sick person.


878- أَخْبَرَنَا ابْنُ جُرَيْجٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ أَخْبَرَنِي إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الأَنْصَارِيُّ، عَنْ أَبِي أُمَامَةَ بْنِ سَهْلِ بْنِ حُنَيْفٍ، وَعَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عَمْرِو بْنِ الْعَاصِ، عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ الْعَاصِ، أَنَّهُ أَصَابَتْهُ جَنَابَةٌ وَهُوَ أَمِيرُ الْجَيْشِ، فَتَرَكَ الْغُسْلَ مِنْ أَجْلِ آيَةٍ قَالَ‏:‏ إِنِ اغْتَسَلْتُ مِتُّ فَصَلَّى بِمَنْ مَعَهُ جُنُبًا، فَلَمَّا قَدِمَ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَرَّفَهُ بِمَا فَعَلَ وَأَنْبَأَهُ بِعُذْرِهِ فَأَقَرَّ وَسَكَتَ‏.‏


878 – Ibn Jurayj reported to us.  He said: Ibrāhīm b. ʿAbd al-Raḥmān al-Anṣārī reported to me from Abū Umāma b. Sahl b. Ḥunayf and ʿAbdullāh b. ʿAmr b. al-ʿĀṣ from ʿAmr b. al-ʿĀṣ that janāba had afflicted him while he was the commander of the army.  So he left off the ghusl due to a verse.  

He said: If I did ghusl I would die.  

So he prayed with whoever was with him while junub.  When he came to the Prophet صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ he informed him of what he had done, and he told him of his excuse.  So he confirmed and was silent.
