Impurity spreading on one’s clothing

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za


1. If I have filth on my clothes less than a dirham size and my clothes get wet from the filth area, does this increase the filth size?

2. Can I pray in those clothes?



1. If the filth expands with the water touching it then obviously the filth will expand.

2. If the filth has spread to more than a dirham then salaah cannot be performed with such clothes.

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