Washing impurity of the body

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. If some drops of urine get on the side areas of vagina even after all the precautions, does pouring water over them using Muslim shower during istinja is enough? I usually wash my legs separately, wash with soap and pour water over the area thrice as i don’t get satisfied by pouring water while making istinja from Muslim shower. What is the right way? I read on your website somewhere that drops dont need to be washed..they can be wiped with tissues. Is it correct?

2. How many times water should be poured on napaak body part? Some says two, some says three. I use soap then pour water thrice. Is washing with soap necessary?



1. Pouring water ove the soiled area is sufficient.

There is no need to wash the legs etc. after the istinjaa has been done.
The drops must be washed.

2. If the napaaki is cleansed after washing it once then this is sufficient. Otherwise keep washing it until the napaaki is removed.

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