Najaasah on clothes but no time

Fatwaa ID: 428

السلام علیکم و رحمة الله و بركاته

A person who has najasah on his cloth more than size of dirham and has few mins left for salah time to end.
What must he do, pray and repeat or let time pass and do qada?
This is in extreme dire circumstance!

جزاك الله خيرا

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

We take note of the details of your query. He should remove the najaasah and/or clean himself appropriately and thereafter perform the salaah. Cleanliness is a prerequisite of salaah. If attaining purity results in the salaah becoming qadhaa, then too purity must be attained first. Depending on the situation, he may or may not be sinful. In all cases, istighfaar should be made.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
