Impurity on one’s hands

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If my hands are napaak with urine no matter whether they are wet or dry and I touch something, if there are no signs of impurity on what I touched, no colour or stain and if there is smell then that will eventually go, do I have to wash what I touched?


A: If your hands were dry, then you do not have to wash the thing you touched. However if your hands were wet with impurity, then you should wash the thing you touched.

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