Q: I was cleaning feces and I was washing my hands after a while I was washing my hands and this stupid thought came to my head like what if you masturbated while cleaning feces and ever since my brain can’t actually remember if I actually did which I really can’t recall like I have no memory like all I remember is cleaning and getting up and wiping but should I consider myself as paak also if I wear a coat since its cold outside will it be najis now?
A: Turning your mind in these doubts is not an act of thawaab. This is not a good nor any virtue. Don’t pay attention to these futile thoughts.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
