Is spider web (cobweb) impure?


As salamu alaykum,


Is spider web (cobweb) impure? If one notices some dreads of spider web after the has prayed on his face does he need repeat prayer?



Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


The spider/cob web is considered to be pure. Therefore if one performs Salaah with the spider/ cobweb, the Salaah will be valid.
