Dealing with OCD: Is My Phone Napak?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: When I woke up this morning I checked my phone before I went to the bathroom when I saw dry period blood under my nails. So I washed my hands and under my nails thoroughly to make sure the is no more traces. If I touched things before I washed my hands but my hands were dry did the things I touched like my phone become napaak? Because I have heard things only become napaak through wetness. My phone didn’t get wet at all that I can remember. so is it napak? I am a very doubtful person trying to slowly treat my OCD problem but I don’t know what to do because I didn’t wash my phone and I touched it after a lot during the day. Then the next day I saw some stuff near the main key I touched the day before. I don’t know if it was from my hands or it is dust from before and now I don’t know what to do? Is my phone napaak? If I touched it did I become napaak? If I touched other things after touching it do they become napaak?


A: No

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