Is it true that whatever is dry is pure even if there was impurity on it ?

Is it true that whatever is dry is pure even if there was impurity on it ?

Answer:
The impure material object does not soil (make impure) anything else unless the impurity is wet and transferable. But, if the impurity is dry or non-transferable, then there is no problem. Fuqaha has stated that: There is no disagreement between Muslim scholars that when a dry impurity touches something dry it does not make the latter impure.
