Asalamualaikum brother does touching impure thing like lizard stool ,lizard itself or chicken stool etc… Make ghusl fard please reply me bro i am really stress about this matter


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

No, Ghusl does not become compulsory by merely touching impurity.

Ghusl becomes compulsory in the following instances:

  1. Emission of semen (with lust if one is awake),
  2. Penetration of the penis into a vagina, even if there is no ejaculation,
  3. When a person accepts Islam,
  4. When a person dies.
  5. When a female becomes pure from her periods or postnatal bleeding.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
