Child’s Urine on One’s Clothing


Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,

Dear Brother,

Can you please guide us for “up to which age of child’s urine is acceptable even it touches our cloths. Can we pray salah without changing clothes? And weather we need to repeat wadu in such cases.”

Jazakallah in advance

In the name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh

In principle, the urine [1] of a Human being is impure irrespective of the age of the person.

However if a child’s urine comes onto one’s clothing, and it is more than the size of a Dirham [2] (the inner-part of one’s palm) then that cloth will have to be washed three times.

If a child’s urine comes onto one’s clothing it will not invalidate ones Wudhu.

And Allah Ta‘ālā knows best
