Performing salaah with a wallet in one's pocket

Q: Is it permissible to have a wallet in one’s pocket while praying salat? The reason I ask this question is because there’s a chance that dollar bills in the wallet may have traces of fecal matter on them as they are used inappropriately in strip clubs.

A: It is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
