Purity of Carpet

Question ID: 18429


Prior to answering please bear in mind that I am and have been plagued by doubts for many years.

Due to the following incident occurring a long while back, I cannot be CERTAIN as to the facts. I can only take an educated guess.

I wore slippers that were MOST PROBABLY wet. After wearing the slippers, I washed my feet.

I am UNCERTAIN if my feet were napaak AT THE TIME of wearing the slippers and prior to washing my feet.

I have carefully considered this and I can’t recall any evidence of napaaki having been on my feet (I used to be in a napaak state & not perform Salah some years back).

I then walked in the carpeted room where we perform Salah with wet feet.

There is no visible sign or smell of urine on the carpet or of pre-seminal fluid. It COULD be present on the carpet, but aside from smell & visibility, there would be no other way of knowing about najasat if it has dried and there is no colour.

In such a scenario, is it permissible to perform Salah on the carpet & to walk on it with wet feet?

Kindly sit with a pious Alim, you need spiritual help more than Fiqh rulings.
