Dog's saliva on clothes

Question:

I took up an offer that requires me to stay in someone's home to care for their one dog for 42 nights. I'm a muslim who takes praying and wudu seriously. I plan to wear clothing that can help me avoid touching the dogs saliva/nose. Does this in any means go against my praying and can I pray in this house in a room where the dog doesn't enter?


Answer:

Assalamualikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,


It will not affect your prayer as long as you make sure that saliva/nose of the dog doesn't get on you or your clothes. It is highly recommended that you keep separate clothes for prayers and worship in general during your stay there.


It is indeed better to pray in a room where the dog doesn't enter.


And Allah knows best
