Q: I read here that wudu must be done in a way that water flows on the parts of the body we wash. I make my wudu in the toilet that is used by non-Muslims that have incontinence and use pieces of clothing to secure their underwear from urine. They use these clothes in a mutual sink. Before wudu I wash toilet sit, try to wash floor every time I see strange drops there, but I don’t wash think, I hope when they wash those clothes, the contamination of urine that occurs is then being washed away with water. However I still doubt that sink, but cant spend so much time every time to wash it too, what I do is, I use a dipper for my wudu. I put a hand inside and then lift it up with some water in my arms, let that water flor on my hand till elbow, this doesn’t happen till the elbow as water isn’t enough and I just help with another hand, I take some water and kind of wipe my hands with it. I try not to splash too much water on a sink to avoid drops on my clothes. Is it ok in shaa Allah?
A: If you do not see any impurity in the sink, regard it to be paak.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
