Touching the walls with napaak hands

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had a little accident. I wet the bed at night so my clothes were soiled with urine and when I went to the bathroom to clean my self up, on the way, as the corridors in the house are narrow the clothes and my hand touched the walls and doors, what shall I do about that? will it be ok for me to spray the walls and door handles which I would have touched with cleaning spray, which is clear and smells different?


A: If your hands were dry and no traces of physical impurity came onto the walls and doors then it will be paak and you will not need to wash it.

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