Doubts regarding a child’s vomit

Q: I suffer from extreme ocd and my family is not very well versed in matters of purity. I try to explain but they don’t care. I am very cautious about this issue and they don’t care. It has reached a point where I am thinking of leaving the house or maybe ALLAH forgive Islam all together. Their ignorance is giving me a hard time. My baby nephew vomited. They don’t wash his clothes or where he voimited. What should I do? I can’t wash every object. On the issue of vomit, can I follow the maaliki or salaafi madhab who don’t consider vomit to be impure?


A: There is no need to stress. If the child vomits on you, then just wash that portion of your clothing.

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