Four opinions on tahara of humans

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

It seems to me that there are four opinions amongst the fuqaha regarding the najasa and tahara of certain groups of people.

- All non-Muslims are najis

- All non-Muslims that are not Ahlul Kitab are najis

- All non-Twelvers are najis

- All humans are tahir

Is there another opinion which I have missed that other fuqaha have?

I think you’ve got them all. Most maraji’ deem the kids and babies of kafirs as najis too, but it’s possible that some fuqaha deem them tahir, not quite sure on this. Sayed Shubr explains the different types of najis humans in the video below.

There's another opinion (that I personally share): all humans are Tahir regardless of their religion except those who openly oppose, hate and fight Islam. That may be extended to extreme nasibi (not "normal" sunnies but those who declare their hate against Ahlalbait(a)) but am not sure about that part. Satan worshipers  ain't tahir aswell.

I was looking for the opinions of the fuqaha.

Q73: What is your view on shaking hands with or touching the wet body of infidels? Is there any difference between the People of the Book and other infidels in this regard? What about their dry body?

A: The infidels, who are not obstinate, are absolutely pure. As for the obstinate infidels, if the moisture of their body reaches one's body, then their body will be impure, but merely coming into contact with them, does not make one's body impure, and there is no difference between the People of the Book and other infidels in this regard.
