Impurity on clothing

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a baby throws up on me or my clothes, can I still pray in those clothes or are the clothes napaak? Also, if a baby urinates on me or my clothes, do I or my clothes become napaak? Lastly, if the blood of another person touches me or my clothes, am I or the clothes napaak?


A: Wash the soiled area and then perform salaah.

If it urinates on your body then the soiled area of your body is napaak and if it urinated on your clothing then the soiled area of the clothing is napaak.

As above.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
