Salaamun alaykum,

	The questions below are follow up questions to the reply issued 
on October 4, 1996 on "Touching Things in the State of Janaabat".  These 
follow up questions were also answered by Shaykh Ali Rasheed.

 Salaamun alaykum,
 This question is related to a recent broadcast by the same subject title.
 Kindly provide answers to the following questions.
         You wrote that "the state of Janaabat is not a state of physical
 impurity but, rather, spiritual impurity. Therefore, it cannot be spread
 in the same manner as a physical impurity. The person in this state (the
 Junub) cannot make anything impure by touching it under any circumstances."
         Does that mean that the clothes I may wear after janaabat and
 before taking the mandatory bath do not become najis?

 Correct. They will not become Najis unless some Najaasah comes into 
 contact with them. The state of Janaabat cannot make them impure. 

 Secondly, you wrote that "...eating while in the state of Janaabat is
 Makrooh... However, if the person perfoms Wudhoo` before eating, it is not
 Is it allowed to perform Wudhoo without taking the mandatory Ghusl-e-janaabat?

 Yes, it is allowed. For example, Marhoom Ayatullah Kho`i, may Allah
 Ta'ala elevate his station, stated: "They have mentioned (meaning
 previous Ulemaa`) that it is Makrooh for the Junub to eat and drink except
 after Wudhoo` or rinsing the mouth (Madhmadhah) or rinsing the nose
 (Istinshaaq)." [Minhaaj As-Saaliheen, pg. 49]

 Remember that the purpose here is only to eliminate the dislike (Karaahat)
 of eating and drinking while being Junub. It does not allow the person to
 do anything which a Junub person is forbidden to do.
