Removing Impurity From a Sofa

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Question:  How does one remove urine from a sofa?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

Removing Urine from a Sofa

Urine is removed from a sofa or the like by first diminishing the filth with a towel, and then repeating  the following steps three times:

(1) pour water upon the spot such that it is dripping wet
(2) pat the spot dry

After the third drying, the sofa is pure [Ibn Nujaym; al-Bahr al-Raiq].

Sitting on a Sofa Dampened with Urine

If you sat on the sofa dampened with urine, then your clothing/body is impure –only if traces of the impurity (i.e the smell or color) are clearly manifest. A feeling of dampness is of no consequence [Tahtawi/Shurunbulali, Hashiyat Maraqi al-Falah].

Hope this helps.

Allah knows best
