Dog Saliva

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai

Q.) Does dog saliva contaminate clothes? What if dog's body rubbed with the clothes? Is it okay to pray in those clothes?

A.) The saliva and sweat of a dog is impure, therefore, if the saliva or sweat of a dog falls on anything pure (body, clothing, etc.) it will also become impure. If there is no sweat on the skin of a dog, the mere rubbing of the body of the dog does not make the body and clothing impure. And Allah Ta„la Knows Best.
