Pearl of Wisdom

when asked by a man about destiny said, '[It is ] a deep sea, so do not delve into it. The man asked, ?O Commander of the Faithful, inform us about destiny.' The Imam said, 'It is the secret of Allah, so do not trouble yourself with it.' The man then asked [again], ?O Commander of the Faithful, inform us about destiny.' The Imam said, 'Seeing as you are refusing [and insisting], it is a matter between two extremes -neither predestination nor absolute free will.'

Question : #489 Category: Taharat / Najasat
Subject: wudhu / urine namaz enquiry
Question: A person who after urinating performs ablution. He then performs prayer. Within his prayer he feels as though a fluid has come out of his penis, there is uncertainty as to the actual type of fluid.

What is the state of his prayers now? Is it invalid?
Answer: If he did "Istibra" which is the process of ensuring that there is no urine left in the urethra or If he knew that the urethra had no urine left because of either staying sometime after urinating and before the purification or because of any other reason, then the prayer is valid and he should not pay attention to this doubt.

If he did not perform the process of "Istibra" and he doubts whether the liquid was urine or not, then he should treat it as urine, consider the ablution and the prayer as void and purify the body and clothes that the liquid contacted.
