Dog Hair

Q:

Salaam, my family purchased a car few years ago and it still has dog hairs from the previous owners. We have tried cleaning them by vacumming however there are still many visible on the seats and floor. Will our hands and clothes be Najis if we touch it?

A:

Wa-Alaykum As Salaam

Congratulations on the new purchase.

Dog hair is considered "ayn-al-najasa" - so is najis in itself.  Najasat is transferred only if there is moisture or wetness between what is najis and what is not, so your hands and clothes will be najis if you touch it where there is moisture or wetness between them, but not while dry.
