Ruling of the vomit of a baby


Brother I suffer from extreme ocd. My family is not very well versed in taharat issue. My brother been blessed with a baby boy. Sometime he drink milk and after some time he throw it back .is that voimit. Also is voimit impure. I told my sister in law to wash his cloth she told me that baby throw or vomit every day and she can’t change and wash his cloth etc. It give me hard time as well. I heard that malik fiqh doesn’t consider voimit impure can i follow malik fiqh. Otherwise I follow hanafi fiqh



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

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

In principle, if one vomits a mouthful, such vomit is impure. This ruling is applicable to the vomit of adults and babies.[1]

Although the full-mouth vomit of a baby is impure, if the vomit on the baby’s clothing dries up, then such vomit will not contaminate other pure clothing.

We advise you against entertaining unnecessary thoughts with regards to your Taharah. It is the trick of Shaytaan to distract man from the actual purpose of his creation (Ibaadah) by creating doubts in his mind with regards issues concerning his purity.

Note: If you are a follower of the Hanafi Madhab, it is not permitted to take the view of another Madhab for such an issue.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
