Q: I was getting help from the teacher for a questions and I was sitting and some bad sexual thoughts came to my mind and I randomly was shaking my leg to and the thought gave me a weird feeling in my private area but soon left also I was shaking my leg but not for the purpose to get rid of that feeling as soon as I realized I even was shaking my leg I stopped but since I was concentrating on my work the thought left my mind and later when I got up I felt a slight bit of wetness and when I came home there was a bit of discharge. Am I napaak?


A: No, however you should make tawbah for the wrong thoughts that you had entertained.

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