Wuḍū from the nūra

495- عَنِ ابْنِ جُرَيْجٍ، قَالَ‏:‏ قُلْتُ لِعَطَاءٍ‏:‏ رَجُلٌ أَطْلَى بِنَوْرَةٍ هَلْ عَلَيْهِ وُضُوءٌ‏؟‏ قَالَ‏:‏ أَوَ لَيْسَ مُغْتَسِلاً‏؟‏ قَالَ‏:‏ وَلاَبُدَّ لَهُ أَنْ يَمَسَّ ذَكَرَهُ، هُوَ الْقَائِلُ، قَالَ‏:‏ قُلْتُ‏:‏ فَطَلَى سَاقَيْهِ مِنْ وَجَعٍ بِهِمَا وَهُوَ مُتَوَضِّئٌ أَيُعِيدُ الْوُضُوءَ‏؟‏ قَالَ‏:‏ لَيْسَتِ النَّوْرَةُ بِحَدَثٍ‏.‏


495 – Ibn Jurayj said: I said to ʿAṭā: A man depilated with nūra (a depilatory lime-based cream), is there a wuḍū upon him?  

He said: Did he not wash himself?  

He said: And there is no way out for him but to touch his penis, he is the one saying (?).  

He said: I said: So he depilated his shanks from a pain with them, while he had wuḍū.  Does he repeat the wuḍū?  

He said: The nūra is not a ḥadath (an occurrence that breaks the wudu).
