Taking a bath if touched by a dog?

Nasihah (Advice): The benefits of Sadaqah (charity)

Sayyiduna Anas bin Malik (Radiyallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Charity extinguishes Allah’s wrath and saves one from an evil death” (Tirmizi)

Q. If a dog touches me, do I have to take a bath and change my clothes before I read namaz?

(Query published as received)

A. A dog itself is not impure but its saliva is impure. So if a dog has to brush against you without its saliva getting onto your clothing, you do not have to change your clothing or bath. You may perform Salaah in that state if you are with Wudhu. If the dogs saliva gets on to you, then too, it is not necessary to bath but it is necessary to wash the soiled area of the clothing before performing Salaah.
