Purification after contact with dogs

Question 




My question is regarding tahara after contact with dogs. I have 2 dogs to protect my business. One is young and still requires training. During training I come into frequent contact with the dog.




1. I understand that if contact is made with its saliva I must wash 7 times. Is sand acceptable?




2. If contact is made with the dog when its fur is wet or my hand is wet does this require the same type of tahara as above?




3. If the dog splashes water at me either from its fur or from the ground does this require tahara as well?
 
Fatwa

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

Scholars are not agreed over the rule regarding the saliva and hair of dogs. The prevailing opinion is that its saliva is impure based upon evidence that the Prophet ordered washing of recipients which were licked or lapped by a dog. Since there is no evidence establishing the impurity of the fur or hair of the dog, then it is considered pure.



So, if some saliva of the dog touches you, you should remove it, as it is impure. But the scholars have two different opinions regarding how to remove this impurity. Some believe that it should be washed seven times, the same as in the case of licking someone. Other scholars believe that it could be washed as any other impurity i.e., till removed completely (once, twice, ..). So, you have the choice to do one or the other.


On the other hand, touching the fur of the dog, wet or dry does not require you to wash, as the fur of the dog is pure.


Allah knows best.

 :salam:

I was wondering if the saliva breaks wudu or prevents prayer.
is our wudu and prayer accepted if we washed with water?
should it be a shower or just wash the area?
