Q. Does the vomit of an exclusively breast fed baby make the clothing soiled and does it have to be washed before salaah?
A. In the case of a breastfeeding child’s vomit, if the child has vomited less than a mouthful, the vomit will be pure and it will not be necessary to wash it before performing Salaah. However, if the child has vomited a mouthful or more, the vomit will be impure and it will be necessary to wash the soiled area of the clothing before performing Salaah. (Maraaqil Falaah 1/155)
Note: In this case, it is not necessary to wash and clean the entire clothing. This should be done before performing Salaah.
Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
