Q: When I first started doing istibraa after going toilet about 2 years ago, I never used to do it properly for about the first 8 months. I used to go to the toilet and without waiting for all the urine drops to come out I used to wash myself. At that time I didn’t even realise that I had to wait for all the urine drops to come out. After washing myself I would then wrap some toilet paper around my private part and after about half an hour I used to take out the toilet paper but I never used to wash myself again. I didn’t realise that I had to wash myself again.

My question is, do I have to make qadha of all my salaahs in this period of about 8 months? I also was imam for many salaahs.


A: There is no need to wash yourself again after removing the tissue paper.

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