High commode in toilet

I have a question regarding the best use of using high commode to avoid napaki because I have to fell in embarrassing situation in office. Please help me for the below:
1. Some people use the toilet before me so I used to wash the seat with water which makes the floor wet. But it is wrong to make the floor wet. Then what should I do? If I use tissue paper on the seat, I feel that something touch my body and hesitate to pray namaz. Please help me by giving any guideline how can I remain paak?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 547/496/M=5/1438)

It is better not to use high commode toilet as it generally carries the possibility of smearing impurity or impure splashes. If there is other toilet where you can sit on the ground in your office or nearby then use it and if you have to use high commode in compulsion then you should make it sure that the impurity does not get you. First clean the set clearly. If the floor may become wet in case you wash it with water then you may also clean the set with tissue paper. After your precaution and care, if yet the impurity gets you then wash it after leaving the place.

Allah knows Best!
