Doubts regarding purity

Q: My husband drinks alcohol and me being a doubtful person feels that when he drinks my whole house and anything he touches will be impure. Like pillow etc if he drools after drinking. I keep cleaning the whole house and its very stressful for me giving me very wrong thoughts at times. Even if I have to wash an alcohol glass which I keep separate in the sink, I feel the whole sink is impure and I keep cleaning it and the side areas. Please help me it’s driving me crazy as I feel everything has become impure including utensils ill wash in the same sink. Please help. My life is getting ruined and I’m having very wrong thoughts.


A: If you can’t manage, then the better thing is that you ask for a separation from this person.

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