Dirty water coming on one’s clothing

Q: Once I went to the bathroom. I felt a splash of washing water or return splash of water from the toilet seat (Indian style) on my hand. I thought that when I will get up I will clean it. But when I got up, I totally couldn’t remember it. I just felt I am missing something. Then I performed wudhu. Then I probably recalled what I was missing. My problem is that my dress was wet before only. So when my hand touched my clothes, is my clothes and wudhu invalid? It was just one small drop of probably dirty water.


A: The wudhu is valid.

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

وفي السراج لو وجد في ثوبه نجاسة مغلظة أكثر من قدر الدرهم ولم يعلم بالإصابة لم يعد شيئا بالإجماع وهو الأصح ا هـ قلت وهذا يشمل الدم فيقتضي أن الأصح عدم الإعادة مطلقا تأمل (رد المحتار 1/219)
