Cleaning the nose

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If the inside of the nose gets napak with blood or you accidently touch the inside of the nose with napak hands without thinking because it itches how shall I make it paak?



1. Remove the blood by washing the nose.

2. If the hand was dry and no physical impurity came on the nose then the nose will not be napaak.

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