Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Yesterday my husband sat on a bench at the airport which had crumbs on it. I am not sure what the source of the crumbs are and I am now concerned that everywhere he sat thereafter like the car as well as the bags which came into contact with the parts of his clothes that touched the bench have now become napaak. I did check his clothes for traces of crumbs but it was hard to determine what was crumbs or just fluff and dirt and also what was the source of it as he was wearing the clothes the entire day and could have gotten the crumbs and dirt from various sources. Please let me know if I am required to wash everything that his clothes came into contact with thrice to make it paak?


A: Don’t pay attention to these doubts.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
