Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: A few men performing jamaat salaah in the masjid or individual salaah at home where there’s small lizard’s faeces scattered around. It got smeared on their palms, knees, etc. with or without their knowledge. Will their salaah be valid? Is the faeces of small lizard’s clean or unclean?


A: I assume it is very minor, and if it is less than the circumference of the inner part of the palm then it will be valid.
