Doubts About Urine Drops

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Yūsuf Badāt


I am a patient of OCD. I have a bad habit of masturbation. A few days ago, I masturbated (I regret that) and then after 30 min, I urinated and then went for bathing. When I was bathing, I had a sensation and feeling in my private part that maybe I leaked urine drops (I have had this sensation many times when bathing). I do not know really if I had leaked a urine drop or not. Then after bathing when I had a towel wrapped around my body, I had a very strong feeling and sensation like feeling hot in and around the private part and do not know really if it is of urine drops of water that is in my body.

When I looked at the towel after that, I saw wetness as my body is not dry. I do not know what this wetness is off? because I did not dry my body after bathing. I do not know if that water was of the body or of urine drops because I had a very strong sensation.

I do not know if it was waswas or not. I am getting thoughts that everything in my house is impure. Maybe, I actually leaked urine. I am not sure about that. I am very depressed about that. Is everything impure like a towel etc?

Note that I do not know if that wetness is of urine or the body’s water.

I am getting doubts that what if it is really urine drops. I am getting thoughts that because I masturbated, the drops of urine is because of that. I do not know what to do. What if the urine drops are actually leaked (I do not know about that). Is everything impure? I had used the same towel without washing many times so is everything impure? I had also the same feelings and situation many times after masturbation.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


The impurity you are referring to can only be certain in the mentioned places, including your body if you can clearly smell or see the impurity with absolute certainty. A mere assumption or doubts of impurities everywhere, does not constitute things being impure. Try your best to always wash and stay clean. Make a concentrated effort to stop masturbating. 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.
