How to make electrical appliances tahir.

Rate this topic

Salam Alaikum everyone,

I have a question regarding the remove of najasah from an electrical appliance (in my case a phone & a laptop), how would one go around making this pure again without taking out the battery (because it cannot be removed) & risk ruining it? Is it possible to use wet wipes perhaps? Salams.

 

(PS - the Najasah falls into the blood/semen category).

Walaykum Asalam.

Without removing the battery it might be a little risky. You don't have to make the interior areas tahir, only exterior surface matters.

Anyhow, pour water twice, shake it lightly, immediately use a thin towel, and then a hairdryer. Leave it in dry place for at least 24 hours.

But the only problem is, neither items are waterproof! which is why I cannot use actual water.

(also the batteries are unable to be removed!)

would a dampened towel/cloth suffice provided it is moist with running water?

Wasalams.

Not at all! that worsens the situation (other areas of your device, the towel itself, your hands become najis!)

Only water makes it tahir, either Kurr or Qalil, it should be pure water, flowing.

What I said is easy. after you wiped off the Najasa from the surface, turn on the tap, in a fraction of a second place your device under flowing water, remember just a fraction of a second, (only its surface, hold your device in an angle that water can't go inside it, like holding a laptop from its edge so that water runs along its keyboard, for instance) then the rest of the procedure. it shall be fine InshaAllah.

Salams I had held my phone from an angle so the water goes all over (it was like a seconds worth!) & then quickly grabbed a towel to dry it. 

However I found out that the laptop doesn't need cleansing, as it wasn't semen, it was a clear liquid substance which comes out before semen. (So thank god for that! Phew!).

PS: the phone was all good, no problems what so ever! ☺️

I'm afraid except for Water, none of the rest options are applicable for the OP's case.

wouldnt it? I assumed that the rules of removal of najisul ayn would apply?

http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2148/

rule 222:

Quote

222. If body of an animal is stained with an Najisul Ayn like blood or with something which has become najis, for example, najis water, its body becomes Pak when the najasat disappears. Similarly, the inner parts of the human body, for example inner parts of mouth, or nose or inner ears become Pak, after the najasat has disappeared. But the internal najasat, like the blood from the gums or the teeth, does not make inner mouth najis. Similarly, any external thing which is placed internally in the body, does not become najis when it meets with the internal najasat. So if the dentures come in contact with blood from other teeth, it does not require rinsing. Of course, if it contacts najis food, it must be made Pak with water.

my understanding that removal of the najasat so that the niajasat completely dissapears, will make the object paak?

Unless you think his electronic device is a body of an animal or inner parts of human body.

That rule only applies to animal bodies and inner parts of human body; as clearly stated in the quoted fatwa.
