I have a nephew younger than two-year-old and a grandfather older than seventy five. It sometimes happens that they can't hold their bladder and dirty the carpet. It is not easy to roll the carpet each time and send to carpet cleaner.

I can't wash the carpet as easy as my clothes because of its bulky body. Then how can I properly clean the carpet from the Najasah? Is wiping with a sponge using detergent enough to make it Tahir? What if some water drops from the sponge to the carpet when I am cleaning the carpet? Do I have to clean the carpet from unseen dirt(dried urine) ?

  • what do you mean by unseen dirt? – مجاهد Jun 22 '12 at 21:21
  • I don't know the exact terms in English. I may not be able to explain perfectly. I meant dried urine by unseen dirt. – sevenkul Jun 22 '12 at 21:32
  • i agree that the question, as worded, is only tenuously on-topic. the body of the question should be reworked to mention that it's asking about cleanliness in the sense of 'tahir(طاهر‎)/najis(نجس)', rather than in the sense of 'unsightly urine stain'. – goldPseudo Jun 22 '12 at 23:03
  • It is impossible to be completely sure that the whole urine is removed. Any of the below given methods do not work for a carpet IMO. you must most probably send it to the cleaner and remove the carpet from your hose till the urinating problem is not solved. one suggestion from my side - why not make those two guys wear diapers? – Ashu Jun 23 '12 at 4:52

Is there a necessity for a carpet first of all? Alhamdulillah, your home may look good even without it. At this point in time, rather than decorating your home, the carpet is making it unclean.

So best of all, hand-wash it at least thrice, dry it in the sun and keep it in the store room for future.

    Is this your own opinion? And I don't think keeping the carpet in the cellar is a good solution! – Gigili Jun 22 '12 at 21:58

according to Jafari Fiqh, you can pour water over area and collect it with something like spoon and repeat this 3 times.




  • but it is dried urine. pouring water will just make the carpet absorb the water and not remove the urine. – Ashu Jun 23 '12 at 4:48
  • @Ashu 3 times of the poured water and collecting water washes it out. it will be dissolved and absorbed in water. anyway this is what Jafari Fiqh says and is enough for carpet being clean Islamicly. – Battle of Karbala Jun 23 '12 at 5:35
