Splashes when washing hands after istinja

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Please can you advise if splashes from the sink that goes on the body when washing hands after istinja or anything else is pure or impure? Sometimes tiny drops splash on my body/feet or even clothes whilst washing hands after istinja and I don’t know if this is pure or not as I doubt myself and then feel that I am impure and start washing the parts the splashes have gone to and change clothes.


A: It is paak.

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