While a man was offering Salah

Q: A woman lives in a single room along with her baby who urinates or defecates in that room. The baby's urine and excretion soil some parts of the room. She performs Salah (prayer) in that room using a mat. Is it permissible for her to perform Salah in this room although some parts of it are impure? What is the ruling on Salah performed in such a room although (Part No. 6; Page No. 210) she performs Salah on a clean mat? Give us a Fatwa in this issue! May Allah increase you in guidance and knowledge and grant all of us success in doing good!

A: Salah should be performed in pure clothes and pure places. A person's body should also be clean. If a baby urinates in a place and you put a pure mat on that place and then perform Salah, your Salah will be valid.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
