2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father, from Hammad, from Hariz from Muhammad ibn Muslim who has said the following: “Once I was in the company of abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and on passing (stepping on) some dried up human feces, certain pieces came in contact with his clothes. I informed him about it and he (the Imam) asked, ‘Was it not dried up?’ I said, ‘Yes, it was dried up.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘It (touching) then is not harmful. Certain parts of earth cleanse other parts.’”
