Back touching a dua paper

Q: I have a paper which has the dua to read when you wake up in the morning stuck to my wall so I don’t forget. As I was making my bed today i didn’t remember or it just slipped my mind but as I was fixing my bed my backside or back might have touched the paper. It was an accident. I didn’t mean to and now I don’t know what to do. I didn’t know if I could touch the paper to move it after because I am napak from my period and I don’t know what to to do? Did I commit a very big sin? What do I do know ? I am a very doubtful person and I keep thinking that I will be severely punished and I am very scared and I don’t know what to do.


A: No, you have not committed a sin and nor is the paper napaak.

There is no need for you to be worried. Do not pay attention to these thoughts.

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