Title: How to get rid of dog saliva?

Question

AssalamuAlaykum wa Rahmatullah

If a dog licks my clothing, what is the correct way to go about purifying them? My question is directed as such:

It it correct to say, "you must wash 3 times" or "you must wash 7 times and the 8th with dirt" and if so what is the implementation of it?

Would a modern day washing machine be considered washing 3x or would there need to be 3 cycles?

Also do the clothes need to be washed in a load seperate from all the other clothes?

Answer

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

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

If ones clothing is soiled with the saliva of a dog, he should wash the clothing three times whilst squeezing it after each wash according to ones ability.[i] [ii] However, if you are certain that the impurity has been washed after the first rinse, then too the clothes will be considered clean. 

 

It will suffice to wash the clothes in a domestic washing machine and the clothes will be considered taahir(clean).

 

It will also suffice to wash all the clothes in one load. It is not necessary to wash the impure clothes in a separate load.

 

 

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

إن كانت غير مرئية كالبول والخمر، ذكر في «الأصل»  وقال يغسلها ثلاث مرات ويعصر في كل مرة، فقد شرط الغسل ثلاث مرات، وشرط العصر في كل مرة. وعن محمد رحمه الله في غير رواية الأصول: أنه إذا غسل ثلاث مرات وعصر في المرة الثالثة یطهر

وَفِي بَعْضِ الرِّوَايَاتِ قَالَ «سَبْعًا، وَتُعَفِّرَ الثَّامِنَةَ بِالتُّرَابِ» فَقَوْلُهُ طَهُورُ إنَاءِ أَحَدِكُمْ دَلِيلٌ عَلَى تَنَجُّسِ الْإِنَاءِ بِوُلُوغِهِ، وَأَنَّ الْأَمْرَ بِالْغَسْلِ لِلتَّنْجِيسِ لَا لِلتَّعَبُّدِ فَإِنَّ الْجَمَادَاتِ لَا يَلْحَقُهَا حُكْمُ الْعِبَادَاتِ، وَالزِّيَادَةُ فِي الْعَدَدِ، وَالتَّعْفِيرِ بِالتُّرَابِ دَلِيلٌ عَلَى غِلَظِ النَّجَاسَةِ، وَالصَّحِيحُ مِنْ الْمَذْهَبِ عِنْدَنَا أَنَّ عَيْنَ الْكَلْبِ نَجِسٌ

 

قَوْلُهُ - صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ - «طَهُورُ إنَاءِ أَحَدِكُمْ إذَا وَلَغَ الْكَلْبُ فِيهِ أَنْ يَغْسِلَهُ ثَلَاثًا» فَتَبَيَّنَ بِهَذَا الْحَدِيثِ أَنَّ الْإِنَاءَ النَّجِسَ يَطْهُرُ بِالْغَسْلِ مِنْ غَيْرِ حَاجَةٍ إلَى تَقْوِيرِ أَسْفَلِهِ لِيَجْرِيَ الْمَاءُ عَلَى النَّجَاسَةِ،
