One category of muktzeh is one in which an item is muktzeh during Ben HaShemashot and remains that way all of Shabbat. Items which remain muktzeh because of a status they had during Ben HaShemashot are called Muktzeh Machmat Isur.

Lit candles

  1. An oil candle that was lit before Shabbat going into Shabbat is muktzeh all of Shabbat even after it goes out. [1]


  1. The Gemara (Shabbat 44a) records a dispute between Rabbi Yehuda and Rabbi Shimon whether the leftover oil in a candle is muktzeh after the candle goes out. Rabbi Yehuda considers it muktzeh, while Rabbi Shimon does not. Rav Acha and Ravina (Gemara Shabbat 157a) agree that we follow Rabbi Yehuda's opinion regarding Muktzeh Machmat Isur and the example it gives is the leftover oil from a candle that was lit that Shabbat.
