Dear Brother / Sister,
1. When a person sees blood on his/her clothes, the following must be checked: if the blood does not cover an area more than the palm of the hand and it is certain that it did not come from the body, the prayer is valid. If that blood came from the body, he/she must perform all of the prayers he/sheperformed after the last wudu (ablution).
2. If he/she sees heavy dirt more than the amount of a dirham on his/her clothes but does not know for sure when it smeared, he/she does not perform any prayer again. There is consensus on it. This id also the soundest view. (al Muhit / Sarakhsi - al Jawharatun- Nayyira)
