Najis

In Islamic law, najis (Arabic: نجس‎) means ritually unclean. According to Islam, there are two kinds of najis: the essential najis which cannot be cleaned and the unessential najis which become najis while in contact with another najis. Contact with najis things brings a Muslim into a state of ritual impurity (Arabic: نجاسة‎ najāsa, in opposition to ṭahārah, ritual purity). Ritual purification is then required before religious duties such as regular prayers are performed.

It is not necessary to take it as Najis unless you are sure that food was touched with wetness by a Najis hands. Food cooked with out been touched or by wearing gloves is not Najis.

Wassalam.

Yes it is permissible to do that, even you can keep Najis leather or any other Najis items in your pocket during Salah as far as Najis items are not wet because wet Najis item will make your pocket Najis which will invalidate your Salah.

Wassalam.

This question is similar to many other fiqhi questions, where one would need to refer to his/her Marja' taqleed. 

That being said, according to the view of most of our esteemed jurists, Ahlul Kitab are not najis, and as for temporary marriage with a Kitabiyah woman, most Maraji' also deem it as halal.

And Allah knows best.

If you performed your obligatory prayers with cloth which you thought it Tahir, then discovered later on that it was not Tahir, you do not need to re perform those prayers, but wear Tahir clothes for coming prayers.

Just wash your hands with water, one time if water is connected to tab or big quantity, and two times if water is in small quantity. Obviously, no Najis material should be on your hands.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

Being in a state of janabah or hayd doesn't make your hands najis. The only times you would spread najasa is when you touch blood or one of the najis substances with a wet hand or body part and then spread it. 
 

You can touch things with wet hands in either state and nothing would become najis. 
 

Only some ulema state that the sweat of someone who has committed zina is najis. 
 

May Allah grant you success

You were not sure if your hand was najis nor did you see any najis substance on it so you can consider that your hand remained pure.

It is very good to save or help any animal including dog and pig. We have a Hadeeth about a sinner who was entitled to go to hellfire but was saved from hellfire just because he gave water to a thirsty dog. There is also a Hadeeth about a Muslim woman wo will go to hellfire just because of a cat which was locked up by her and left with out food and water. It is always very good to help, feed, give water to any animal.

Touching wet dog or wet pig will make your hand or body Najis, and that will never harm you as it can be purified with water.

Wassalam.

We are meant to be the guardians of the earth, showing mercy, especially to innocent animals. We have a duty to care for them. Therefore, even if you became najis after rescuing the animal, this is of lesser importance than showing mercy and humanity towards a sentient being that is suffering. You can easily become tahir again by purifying yourself after touching the animal.

Asalamu Alaykom, 

If the ayn an najasa was still left on the clothes (for example pieces of fecal matter) then yes they would be najis. However if it was only stains left such as blood stains, then this wouldn't  be najis as the actual najis substance has been removed.

Bismillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, if najasa was still on some of the clothes then you need to rewash them again as they would be najis.

If only colour remains, then it wouldn't be necessary to rewash. For example you had some clothing with blood on it and the red stain remained while the actual substance was removed. In such a case the item would be tahir and colour wouldn't be an issue. 
 

May Allah grant you success
