Water falling on one’s feet while washing

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Sometimes when using washroom there are back splashes at weird places which are difficult to wash like the sides. I try to wash those places after I am done but sometimes while washing the water falls on floor and on my feet. Is this water impure? Do I need to wash my feet and floor? Will I be impure and spread impurities? Also when using toilet if there are some impurities on the seat or shower, can I clean it by wetting the tissue and wiping it and then wiping with dry tissue because if I pour water, the impurities will spread on the floor making the floor napaak.



1. While washing if water had fallen on your feet and floor, your feet and the floor will not be regarded as impure.

2. Yes

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