Touching objects in the state of janaabat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a question that whenever I am in a state of impurity like after semen ejaculation, can I touch objects like phone books etc? Like they won’t become impure because if they become impure just by touching whenever I am in a state of impurity then how can I take a bath? Whenever I want to masturbate, I try to avoid it by doing wudhu, etc, reciting kalima but still I end up doing that. What should I do?


A: You can touch it. They will not become impure.

Get married.

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