A dog licking a person and utensils

Home / Food / A dog licking a person and utensils


Is it required for a child below the age of seven years and not praying as yet to wash himself with soil seven times after touching a dog?

Umm Abdel-Malik:

There is no narration of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, stating that if a dog touches a person he must wash himself seven times. This is only for the utensils. The hadith says if a dog licks the utensil of one of you then he washes it once with soil and 6 with water.

      قال رسول الله, صلى الله عليه وسلم:

      إِذَا وَلَغَ الْكَلْبُ فِي إِنَاءِ أَحَدِكُمْ فَلْيَغْسِلْهُ سَبْعَ مَرَّاتٍ أُولاَهُنَّ بِالتُّرَابِ
