Q & A Wudu' and Purity

Q & A: “A little mud on clothes…”


Q. A little mud on clothes.


There is no harm if a little splatter of mud or traces of mud appear on one’s clothes and h/she then prays. This is overlooked. However, if able to, it is better to wipe or wash away the mud traces.

“As for a little impurity (al-najasa al-qalila), it does not make prayer impermissible regardless of whether it is light (khafifa) or heavy (ghaliza) based on istihsan…”[1]

أما النجاسة القليلة فإنها لا تمنع جواز الصلاة، سواء كانت خفيفة أو غليظة استحسانا

And Allah knows best.

[1] See al-Kasani, Bada’i` al-Sana’i`, vol.1, p.232.
