Doubts When Doing Istinjah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Shaykh Ahmed bin Mohamed Umarji


I want to ask that after urinating I press my penis from bottom to top and wipe the urine drops until it stops. And once urine drops stop coming I wash them with water. But when I shower and my hand touches my penis the hole of the penis merely opens and flowing water goes in obviously after urinating we only wipe our penis from the outside so the inside of the penis is still najis and if even it’s wet it has urine on it that has dried. So when that water comes back out will it break my wudu. I’m very much concerned about this and in the past, I have suffered from OCD related to najasat. Am I being over conscious about this or not?

It is good to be cautious about purification. Allah Ta’ala loves those who purify themselves.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ التَّوَّابِينَ وَيُحِبُّ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ ‎﴿٢٢٢﴾‏

Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves.” [Surah Baqarah, Verse 222]

If such a scenario occurs again in the future whilst you are taking a shower you should wash your private parts and renew your wudhu whilst in the shower.1
