TweetWUDU BECAUSE OF FOOD THAT HAS BEEN COOKED OVER FIRE
Kitab al Athar of Imam Abu Hanifa - Chapter on Wudu because of food that was cooked over with fire
16. Muhammad said, "Abu Hanifa informed us saying, 'Amr ibn Murrah informed us from Sa'id ibn Jubayr that Abdullah ibn Amr said, "If I, in the state of wudu, was brought a large bowl of bread and meat and I ate till I was satisfied, and a large bowl of camel milk from which I drank until full, I would not care if I did not touch water. Should I make wudu because of wholesome good things?"'" meaning I will not do wudu for that.
Muhammad said "This is the verdict of Abu Hanifa, and we adhere to it. There is no wudu because of that which fire has changed (by cooking). Wudu is only done because of things that exit (the body) not because of things that enter."
17. Muhammad said, "Abu Hanifa informed us saying, 'Abd ar-Rahman ibn Zaadhaan narrated to us that Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (ra) said, "The Messenger of Allah (salallahu 'alahyi wa sallam) entered my house, and I brought meat which had been roasted and he tasted some of it. Then he called for water, washed his hands and rinsed his mouth, and later prayed without renewing wudu."'"
18. Muhammad said, "Abu Hanifa informed us saying, 'Shabaah ibn Musaawir narrated to us saying, "I was seated with 'Adi ibn Artaah when he asked al-Hasan al-Basri, 'Should I perform wudu because of that [food] which the fire has touched?' and he answered, 'Yes.' Then Bakr ibn Abdullah al-Muzni said, 'The Prophet (salallahu 'alahyi wa sallam) went to see his aunt Safiyyah bint Abd al-Muttalib and she picked out some cold shoulder meat for him which he ate and he did not renew wudu.''""
Muhammad said "We adhere to the verdict of Bakr ibn Abdullah al-Muzni and it is the verdict of Abu Hanifa."
19. Muhammad said, "Abu Hanifa informed us saying, 'Yahya ibn Abdullah narrated to us that Abu Majid al-Hanafi said about Abdullah ibn Masud (ra), "Once while we were seated in the mosque with ibn Masud (ra), they came towards us with a bowl and a jug of water from the Door of the Elephant. Ibn Masud (ra) said, 'I think that you are going around with this [food]?' One of the men of the party said, 'Yes, Abu Abdur Rahman, there was a banquet in the neighbourhood.' So it was put down and he ate some of it and drank some of the water. Then he poured some over his hands and washed them, wiped his face and arms with his damp hands and said, 'This is the Wudu for someone who has not nullified his wudu''""
Muhammad said, "This is the verdict of Abu Hanifa, and we adhere to it. There is no harm in washing (wudu) in the mosque if it is not because of something impure.
The Door of the Elephant meaning the door of the mosque or the door of the city of that name.
