Title: Does the toilet become pure once it is flushed?

Question

the water within the toilet becomes najis once you do NO 1 or NO 2 - does flushing the toilet once purify the water (make it paak) within the toilet?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Why would one enquire the position of that water? Furthermore, while there may be no impurity visible in and around the toilet pan, the water is attached to the area of the pipe beyond one’s sight in which there is a possibility of particles of impurity in that area, the water will thus be impure.[1]

And Allah Taala Knows Best

أَمَّا الْقَلِيلُ فَيَنْجُسُ وَإِنْ لَمْ يَتَغَيَّرْ

  

(الاختيار لتعليل المختار، ج ١، ص ١٤)

 (وَ) أَمَّا (الْمَاءُ الرَّاكِدُ إِذَا وَقَعَتْ فِيهِ نَجَاسَةٌ لَا يَجُوزُ الْوُضُوءُ بِهِ) لِقَوْلِهِ - عَلَيْهِ الصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَامُ -: لَا يَبُولَنَّ أَحَدُكُمْ فِي الْمَاءِ الدَّائِمِ ثُمَّ يَتَوَضَّأُ مِنْهُ أَوْ يَشْرَبُ

قَالَ: (إِلَّا أَنْ يَكُونَ عَشَرَةَ أَذْرُعٍ فِي عَشَرَةِ أَذْرُعٍ) ، وَالْأَصْلُ أَنَّ الْمَاءَ الْقَلِيلَ يَنْجَسُ بِوُقُوعِ النَّجَاسَةِ فِيهِ وَالْكَثِيرُ لَا

 

(العناية شرح الهداية، ج ١، ص ٩٨)

لَمَّا ذَكَرَ حُكْمَ الْمَاءِ الْقَلِيلِ بِأَنَّهُ يَتَنَجَّسُ كُلُّهُ عِنْدَ وُقُوعِ النَّجَاسَةِ فِيهِ حَتَّى يُرَاقَ كُلُّهُ

 

(مجمع الأنهر في شرح ملتقى الأبحر، ج ١، ص ٢٨)

اعْلَمْ أَنَّهُمْ اتَّفَقُوا عَلَى أَنَّ الْمَاءَ الْقَلِيلَ يَتَنَجَّسُ بِوُقُوعِ النَّجَاسَةِ فِيهِ دُونَ الْكَثِيرِ

 

(المحيط البرهاني في الفقه النعماني، ج ١، ٩٢)

يجب أن يعلم أن الماء الراكد إذا كان كثيراً فهو بمنزلة الماء الجاري لا يتنجس جميعه بوقوع النجاسة في طرف منه إلا أن يتغير لونه أو طعمه أو ريحه. على هذا اتفق العلماء وبه أخذ عامة المشايخ، وإذا كان قليلاً فهو بمنزلة الحباب والأواني يتنجس بوقوع النجاسة فيه وإن لم تتغير إحدى أوصافه

 

(العناية شرح الهداية، ج ١، ص ٧٣)

وَتَوْجِيهُ الثَّانِيَةِ الْمَاءُ الرَّاكِدُ قَلِيلًا كَانَ أَوْ كَثِيرًا إذَا وَقَعَتْ فِيهِ نَجَاسَةٌ لَا يَجُوزُ الْوُضُوءُ بِهِ
