It is bidah to kiss ones thumbs when hearing the Adhaan.


1. sometimes when i read thingd like fatwas on marrages i arouse / errection and then when its gone some times some liquid drips
very thin liquid is this najasah i cant see it on the clothes whent its dried i can smell it sometimes
now when wash my self from the front sometimes liquid comes out im pretty sure its water that was used for washing
will this count as najasath 

2. also i have been told by my brother that it is a bidah to kiss thumbs when heering azan is this true


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh


  1. The liquid emission is mazi. It is impure. The private part as well as the undergarments soiled with mazi should be washed.
  2. It is bidah to kiss ones thumbs when hearing the azaan.

And Allah knows best
