Child sitting with impure clothes on a sofa

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My 4 year old kid sometimes urinates a few drops in his pajamas and doesn’t tell me. When I check then I find his trouser wet. We have leather sofas, so when I check the area where he was sitting, it’s mostly dry. Maybe it gets dry by the time I go check or maybe it doesn’t get wet at all. Should I wash that area or how do I purify it?


A: If there are no signs of urine on the sofa then regard it as paak.

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