Dry Impurity Does Not Pass To The One Who Touches It

en   -

If a child urinates on the bed then I sit on this bed after it has dried, do my clothes become naajis (impure)?


Praise be to Allah.

Dry impurity does not pass to the one who touches it, so his garments do not become naajis and neither does his body. If a person sits on dried urine, his clothes do not become naajis as a result of that, and he does not have to wash them.

Najaasah (impurity) is only transmitted if it is wet. So if the impurity is wet or the hand of the one who touches it is wet, then it is transmitted as a result.

۩ Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Jibreen (may Allaah preserve him) was asked:

Does dried urine not make clothes impure? i.e., if a child urinates on the ground and the urine remains there until it dries without being washed off, then someone comes and sits on the urine when it has dried, does his garment becomes impure?

He replied:

Touching dry impurity does not affect the body or dry clothes, and it does not matter if one enters a dry washroom with dry feet, because the impurity is only transmitted when it is wet. End quote.

Fataawa al-Mar’ah al-Muslimah (1/194).

And Allaah knows best.
