Dried impurities


If stool gets dried with wind and stays there for a week untill it becomes solid in such a way that you could crush it, in this case if water touches the dry stool and then gets to your clothe, will your clothe become inpure (napaak)


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The stool will still be impure.[1] If water touches the stool, the water will become impure. If such water soils the clothing, the clothing will become impure. 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

أَنَّهُ لَا فَرْقَ بين أَنْ يَكُونَ الْغَائِطُ رَطْبًا ولم يَقُمْ من مَوْضِعِهِ أو قام من مَوْضِعِهِ أو جَفَّ الْغَائِطُ

دَلِيلٌ آخَرُ عَلَى نَجَاسَتِهِ ، رُوِيَ " { أَنَّهُ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مَرَّ بِعَمَّارِ بْنِ يَاسِرٍ وَهُوَ يَغْسِلُ ثَوْبَهُ مِنْ النُّخَامَةِ فَقَالَ : عَلَيْهِ الصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَامُ : مَا نُخَامَتُك وَدُمُوعُ عَيْنَيْك وَالْمَاءُ الَّذِي فِي رَكْوَتِك إلَّا سَوَاءٌ ، وَإِنَّمَا يُغْسَلُ الثَّوْبُ مِنْ خَمْسٍ : مِنْ الْبَوْلِ ، وَالْغَائِطِ ، وَالدَّمِ ، وَالْمَنِيِّ ، وَالْقَيْءِ }
