Living in a hostel


1. I live in a hostel and I have to share bathrooms with kaafirs. My question is I have doubts about the purity of the bucket but I don’t see any kind of visible najaasat. What I used to do was I fill up the bucket till the water overflow and I use the water from that bucket without throwing it and recently I have seen on this website that you have to throw the water to make that bucket pure. So was I impure all the time and do I have to repeat my prayers.

2. My room mate uses anti anti-perspirants like powder and I see particles on the floor and I don’t know whether that powder is made from halaal sources or not. My leg touches those particles which is very much less than a dirham even after combining all the particles. Does my leg become impure and the places where I keep my feet also became impure? It was less than a dirham size.



1. If there is no apparent reason to doubt it is permissible for you to use their utensils.

2. Unnecessarily don’t entertain doubts.

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