Does contact with a dog render clothes impure

Recommended Posts

Q. We go for Ghust to people’s houses Sometimes people keep dogs at their houses and the dogs pass by us and touches our clothing. Does it make our clothing impure?
 
 
A. If the body of a dog touches your clothing as it passes by you, your clothing will not be considered impure.
 
However, a dogs sweat and saliva are considered impure. As such, if the dogs sweat or saliva touches or falls onto your clothing, your clothing will be considered impure. (Shaami 1/208)
 
In such a case, you may purify your clothing by washing the impurities off your clothing thrice or until it is clean.
 
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
