Blood when cleaning chicken or meat

Fatwaa ID: 571

Assalamu alaikum ww.
What is the ruling regarding the blood that gets onto your clothes while cleaning chicken or meat ,is Salah permissible with it ?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Blood is najis and must be washed off. The soiled portion in the enquired situation should be washed if it is blood. You do not need to wash the entire garment. It should be noted that if you are referring to myoglobin, then that is not najis and does not need to be washed off.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
