    Title: Plastic tank and dead animal

    Question: I would like to ask that if there is a dead animal like mouse or any other animal in the water tank made of plastic do we have to replace the tank or it can be purified only by washing? And can this tank be used after washing? Is the water pure because I heard somewhere that islamically plastic cannot be purified?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1317/1039/D=12/1435) The things which do not absorb water such as the utensil of plastic etc shall be pure after washing three times. Thus you may use the said water tank after washing and the waster filled in it shall be pure. There is no need to replace the water tank.
