Toilet splashes

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a question that might seem self explanatory but theory had been a major fight in the family home concerning whether the spray from the toilet when the lid is open would make someone najis (dirty) if they sat down on it. Can you please clarify this as this has become a big issue with people leaving the toilet lid open and the flush makes a mist in the bathroom thus spreading microscopic particles and small drop everywhere. I appreciate your time.


A: You are not responsible for these microscopic particles and unnoticeable droplets.

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