Reference to Littering in Masjid is like Dropping a Dead Donkey Inside the Masjid

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Imran Mughal


There’s another commonly quoted statement: Whoever drops a piece of dirt in the masjid, it as if he had dropped a dead donkey; and whoever removes a piece of dirt from the masjid, it is as if he had removed a dead donkey from the masjid.

Any reference to this?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


I have not come across a hadith or statement like this by anyone.
