Muktzeh Machmat Gufo


We have described two categories of Muktzeh already; a third is Muktzeh Machmat Gufo ("set aside because of its inherent nature"). This category includes items which have no use at all, and therefore one does not intend to use them at the start of Shabbat.

This category includes stones and sand, and anything that has no function. However: One who decides (even mentally) before Shabbat that he will use such an item for a specific permitted purpose may then handle it on Shabbat.

(Shemirat Shabbat k'Hilchatah 20:25, 44)

Have a great day,
