Doubts regarding istinja

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had a question regarding Istinja. Does the inside of the opening of the tip of the penis need to be washed. Or is this just wasawas. Because after I walk around with tissue tied and come back to do Istinja sometimes the opening is a a bit open. Does doing Istinja with out entering the water inside suffice. I eagerly wait your reply. Please make duaa as this wasawas is effecting me?


A: After making istinja, if no urine came out from the private part, there is no need to wash the area again. Do not pay attention to these doubts.

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