Wuḍū with nabīdh

693- عَنِ الثَّوْرِيِّ، وَإِسْرَائِيلَ، عَنْ أَبِي فَزَارَةَ الْعَبْسِيِّ قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو زَيْدٍ، مَوْلَى عَمْرِو بْنِ حُرَيْثٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ مَسْعُودٍ قَالَ‏:‏ لَمَّا كَانَتْ لَيْلَةُ الْجِنِّ تَخَلَّفَ مِنْهُمْ رَجُلاَنِ فَقَالاَ‏:‏ نَشْهَدُ الْفَجْرَ مَعَكَ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ‏:‏ مَعَكَ مَاءٌ‏؟‏ قُلْتُ‏:‏ لَيْسَ مَعِي مَاءٌ، وَلَكِنْ مَعِي إِدَاوَةٌ فِيهَا نَبِيذٌ، فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ‏:‏ تَمْرَةٌ طَيِّبَةٌ، وَمَاءٌ طَهُورٌ فَتَوَضَّأْ‏.‏ قَالَ إِسْرَائِيلُ فِي حَدِيثِهِ‏:‏ ثُمَّ صَلَّى الصُّبْحَ‏.‏


693 – al-Thawrī and Isrā’īl from Abū Fazāra al-ʿAbsī.  He said: Abū Zayd the client of ʿAmr b. Ḥurayth narrated to us from ʿAbdullāh b. Masʿūd.  

He said: When it was the night of the jinn, two men fell behind from them and said: We will witness the dawn with you, O Messenger of God.  

The Prophet صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said: Do you have some water with you?  

I said: I don’t have any water with me, but I have an idāwa (a receptacle for holding water for wudu) with me in which there is some nabīdh.  

So the Prophet صَلَّى الله عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said: A goodly date, and its water is a purifier, so do wuḍū.

Isrā’īl said in his narration: Then he prayed the morning (prayer).


694- عَنِ الثَّوْرِيِّ، عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ، عَنِ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ‏:‏ لاَ تَوَضَّأْ بِلَبَنٍ وَلاَ نَبِيذٍ‏.‏


694 – al-Thawrī from Ismāʿīl b. Muslim from al-Ḥasan.  He said: Do not do wuḍū with milk or nabīdh.


695- عَنِ ابْنِ جُرَيْجٍ، عَنْ عَطَاءٍ، أَنَّهُ كَانَ يَكْرَهُ أَنْ يُتَوَضَّأَ بِاللَّبَنِ‏.‏


695 – Ibn Jurayj from ʿAṭā that he used to dislike for wuḍū to be done with milk.
