Must I Use Soap in Order to Remove Impurities?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Shaykh Yusuf Weltch

Question: Assalamu alaykum

Must I use soap in order to remove impurities from my body?

Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

You should wash the area affected by the urine. You do not need to use soap nor hot water to remove it. “One does not need to burden themselves, in its removal, by using hot water, soap, or the likes.” [al-Durr al-Mukhtar]

The Moisturizer would not affect the cleaning of the urine. A simple wash would suffice.

May Allah bless you
Allahu A’alam
