Living with OCD: Dealing with Impurity Obsessions

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am suffering from ocd from 11 years. Recently I was on night shift and I slept had a wet dream in morning. I changed my night dress. I couldn’t have ghusl so came home like that now I feel that the places I walked in my home are impure. Immediately after reaching home I had ghusal. Now I think as I didn’t have ghusl I wore my shoes and socks and dress like that. I think they are impure.


A: The places you walked on are not impure.

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