Dealing with Uncertainty: My Washroom Dilemma

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: When I went to the washroom I saw something brown on the seat. Sometimes there is napaaki on the seat which I clean like urine or pot splash back but I’m not sure whether this was na paki or not as it was dry but my mind says it, though I don’t know. I tried to pour some water but then I took a tissue and cleaned it. A drop or so maybe fell on floor from pouring water and I don’t remember whether I poured water to clean it. Usually I wash my feet and I don’t know whether that water got mixed or not. Now I’m not sure whether it will be in my slippers and my whole house will be napaak.


A: Don’t pay attention to these doubts.

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