The purity of semen
27 Aug 2011 01:23 GMT
I heard that semen is pure and if a person prays with it on his clothing, his prayer is valid. Is this true?

Semen is pure, so it is alright if it touches the hands or the clothes.

The evidence for this is the fact that `A’ishah simply scratched dried semen off of the Prophet’s garment, and then the Prophet (peace be upon him) prayed wearing that garment.

And Allah knows best.
