Clothes fell down in the bathroom

Fatwaa ID: 518

Asalam Alaikum respected Ulema,
If clothing falls down in the bathroom and the floor is dry, and the clothes are picked up right away, will the clothes still be considered clean and we can pray in it?
Jazak Allah Khair

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

The default of a dry surface is purity. Unless you see physical impurity on the clothing, it will be regarded to be clean and you may perform salaah with it. Similarly, mere wetness does not mean impurity. You should not entertain any unfounded doubts. In the enquired situation, your clothing are pure. You may perform salaah with it.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
