Pure and Mixed Water

15. Water is either pure or mixed. Mixed water (Ma 'ul muzaf) means the water which is obtained from something like melon juice, or rose water, or that water in which something else is mixed, (for example, so much dust is mixed in it that it may no longe r be called water).

Any water other than mixed water is called pure water (Ma'ul mutlaq), and they are of five types:

  1. Kurr Water,
  2. Under-Kurr Water, (QALEEL)
  3. Running Water, (JAREE)
  4. Rain Water,
  5. Water of a Well
