Doubts regarding purity

Q: I am a very doubtful person and I keep doubting myself over impurity. I have a few questions please help me make my life easier on me.

1. We take a shower in bathtub and during wudhu I wash my feet in there. On one side of the tub water collects and we have to drain it by pushing it with our feet towards the drain. So does my wudhu or ghusl qualify or do I have to wash then drain with feet and then wash again?

2. While washing my hands some soap which I had put on my hand touched a part of my hair. From the shoulder as my hair was falling off the shoulder. Does my hand become impure if it touches the soap on my hand which I had applied?

3. After Intimate relations between couples if after that you touch your phone or switch with that hand does it become impure. If impurity is dried off but hands are not washed and you touch it. Does it become impure if you touch other things? And if someone else touches the same things with wet hands, does that other person become impure?



1. The ghusal is valid.

2. No

3. If there is no visible traces of impurity on your hand, then through touching it, it will not be impure.

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