Doubts on the Impurity Spreading All Over the House

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Yūsuf Badāt


I was careless and have spread impurity i.e. prostatic fluid/semen to all things in my house how can I clean all things in my house? Also on rainy days, people come to our house in wet clothes so their clothes become impure. I also go to the masjid making the carpet of the masjid impure. The impurity is spreading all over, wherever I go, what should I do as it has caused me mental depression.

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


The impurity you are referring to can only be certain in the mentioned places if you can clearly smell or see the impurity with certainty. A mere assumption of impurities everywhere does not constitute things being impure. Try your best to always wash and stay clean. Dispel any doubts, as doubts regarding purity are at times from the devil. – (See: Rad Al- Muḥtār, Vol 6, Page 7331, Vol 1, Page 1882, Dār Al-Fikr, Al-Qawāid Al-Fiqhīyyah, Page 15, Dār Al-Tirmidhī3)

Only Allāh knows best.
