The Ruling on Water that Is Changed with a Pure Additive

Shaykh Ibn ʿUthaymīn said [concerning water to which something pure is added causing the water to change one or all its properties from taste, smell, and colour]: “This is not enough to change this water to a state which makes it ineligible for wuḍūʿ, except if the additive is sufficient to completely change the way we refer to that water. For example [to the point] where we would say: ‘this is gravy’ or ‘coffee’ [despite those things being primarily water-based]. At such a point, these liquids stop being referred to as water, instead they are termed beverages whose respective names are derived...

If water is changed [in taste, colour, or smell] by something that is considered najis, then that water is najis. Water that is unchanged by najis is ṭahūr. As for the [third] division of ṭāhir, it does not exist in the sharīʿah. This is also the opinion taken by Shaykh al-Islām...
