Taharat » Qalīl water

Ruling 23. Qalīl water is water that does not gush from the earth and is less than kurr.

Ruling 24. If qalīl water is poured onto an impure object or an impure object comes into contact with qalīl water, the qalīl water becomes impure. However, if qalīl water is poured over an impure object from above, then the amount that comes into contact with the object is impure, and the amount that does not come into contact with it is pure.

Ruling 25. If qalīl water is poured onto an impure object in order to remove an intrinsic impurity from it and the qalīl water separates from the impure object, and if the impure object is from among those things that do not become pure by washing once(1),16 then in such a case, the qalīl water [that has separated from it] is impure. Similarly, if after removing the intrinsic impurity, qalīl water is poured onto an impure object in order to purify it and the qalīl water separates from it, then based on obligatory precaution it is impure.

Ruling 26. Qalīl water with which the urinary outlet or the anus are washed does not make anything it comes into contact with impure, provided that five conditions are met:

1.
it does not acquire the smell, colour, or taste of the impurity;
2. another impurity has not come into contact with it;
3. another impurity, such as blood, has not come out with the urine or faeces;
4. particles of faeces do not appear in the water;
5. a more than usual amount of impurity has not spread around the urinary outlet or the anus.

(1) Such as the inside of an impure utensil. See Ruling 144.
