Will I Get Rewarded for a Good Deed If I Receive Benefit From It in This Life?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaykum

In our home no one can keep cleanliness from filth. Every things and every places have filth and every person get filth. How to deal with this situation?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

The basic assumption is that objects and places are ritually pure.

Holding otherwise is mere conjecture and not acceptable without clear proof. Having said that, there is also no obligation to investigate into such matters. Perform the ritual ablution (wudu) and then pray just like other local, practising Muslims do.
