Toilet leakage problem

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: There was leakage in the washroom ceiling and then it stopped by itself. There is a washroom on the top floor. The water from the leakage has dried now. If somebody uses the washroom and wet feet touch floor and they walk around the house will the house be impure. The floor was not washed after the leakage water dried. Is whole house impure and I can’t pray there?


A: Do not pay attention to these doubts. Until you are not certain that it is napaak, regard it as paak.

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