Waswasas and doubts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: After I had showered I was checking to see if my underwear was wet so I could change it before putting on a new pad. I didn’t feel any wetness so I decided to keep it on. But before I washed my hands I touched some clean clothes. I don’t remember my hands being wet. What I can’t stop wondering what if it was. There was no blood on my hands either that I can remember and the clothes I put back in my closet with other clean clothes. Were the clothes I touched napaak? How do I clean them all? Are the clothes that touched the clothes I touched in my closet now napaak? How am I supposed to clean them? My mom wont let me wash clothes if they haven’t been worn. What do I do? Are they all napaak now?


A: If your hands were dry, then your clothes are paak.

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