Removing impurity from a carpet

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: We have wall to wall carpets on each room’s floor in our house. If it gets impure, how can one make it paak? It is not possible to pick it up and let water flow through it. I take a dry towel. Pour water over the impurity and rub it dry with the towel. I repeat it three times. Does it make the carpet pure?


A: Wash the soiled area and continue to dab it with a cloth until the impurity is removed. Thereafter, once it dries, you should repeat this process two more times.

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