Bleeding on clothes

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by Molana Muhammad Adnan 


I wanted to ask that i must have bled a little bit from my left index finger by the knuckle which I didn’t know about.. I saw this afterwards and It didn’t seem like this flowed but more like it smudged as the bleeding was on the knuckle which has creases.. because I was folding clean clothes and put them away and may have touched my clothes  which I was wearing, I just don’t know if the blood would have transferred anywhere because I only realised later on that it bled and at this point it seemed almost dry.. I don’t know if this blood touched my clothes I was wearing or the clean clothes I put away or anything i my have touched and with most clothes being black it is hard to tell if there are blood stains.. please can you tell me if I need to wash them clothes again or would they be considered pure? Is my namaz counted in the same clothes I was wearing and if these clothes got wet than what if there was blood and it transferred, I am so worried, please help me? Jazak’alla



If the blood was hardly flowing and only slightly smudged then it won’t have spread more than a 2 pence coin. If that is so, it will be excused and prayer is accepted. (Bahishti Zewar P51)
