Washing off impurities

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: While changing clothes if female normal discharge touches any part of the body like I just feel the wetness, can I clean that area with wet tissue paper and then with a dry one. I had wiped with a wet tissue so will my body be clean or am I impure and have spread impurity everywhere?

If someone drinks alcohol at night and then drinks water. The next day he doesn’t gargle or brush and has tea water etc and then eats with his hands. If the hand touches the saliva will the hand be impure and if he touches anything with it will that be impure too or the water had cleaned the saliva of impurity. I’m being doubtful as someone visited home and did that.


A: 1. You should wash it.

2. If there is no traces of the alcohol left in his mouth, nothing will be impure.

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