Wears slippers with pigskin soles

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Someone wears slippers with pigskin soles. If he now takes off the slippers and walks on a carpet, does the carpet becomes impure? The person was wearing socks with slippers that were not wet, but as you know the socks get kind of humid/ from feet heat when wearing/walking. Does such dampness (without actual wetness) transfer the impurity or must it be real wet?


A: If the feet was not wet, then regard the carpet to be pure.

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