Ruling 22

There are two ways to establish that a quantity of water is kurr:

  1. One is certain (i.e. he has yaqīn) or confident (i.e. he has iṭmiʾnān) about it, even if that is because of what someone has said;
  2. Two dutiful (ʿādil) men report it as so. If one dutiful or trust-worthy person or someone who has possession of the kurr water reports it as so, and if his report does not give one confidence as to it being true, then based on obligatory precaution (al‐iḥtiyāṭ al‐wājib), the water being kurr will not be established.
