Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Can we say zikr and salat if we have najaasat (e.g. small amount of urine) on our clothes or body?


A: Zikr will be permissible under all cases. Salaah will be valid if the amount of the impurity is less than the circumference of the palm.

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