Question:


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah


A person used multiple wet wipes to clean a car seat which had blood on it until the wipes no longer stained red. Does this make the seat pure?


Answer:


 


In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind


In order to purify the car seat of blood, it would be necessary to remove the substance of the blood as well as any effects left by it such as smell and colour. This may be done in whichever way possible.


If by using the wet wipes the substance of the blood as well as its effects have been removed, then the car seat will be considered to be pure.


However, if this is very difficult to achieve and requires much straining and exertion then by cleaning the blood-stained area to such an extent that the wet wipes no longer stained with blood, the car seat will be considered to be clean.[1]
