    Question: Please reply according to Quran & Ahadith only. Reply only if you feel that such question should be answered, else please ignore my question, I don't want to disturb you or waste your valuable time. Water spilt on street/ road, turning into mud etc. with other napak/ impure things already present on street/ road. If we walk on such wet street/ road (wet because of rain or any other reason). It is observed that such wet mud (with impurities) fell on our cloths from backside, if we walk on it, after sticking to our slippers/ footwear. How could we offer Namaz / Salah with such cloths (with wet impure/pure mud , mix not sure)?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    It is difficult to avoid the mud which emerges in roads after rain and it smears on back of the cloth while walking; therefore,  it is exempted provided it does not have any visible impurity. You may offer your salah in the same cloth. And if the impurity appears but it is in such a quantity that is exempted yet salah will be valid in the same cloth; however, if one is sure then he should wash it. But if the impurity is more than the quantity that is not exempted then it is mandatory to wash it, as salah will not be valid without washing it.
