Since you’ve always answered my previous questions good and reliable, I will ask another one about a topic thats bothering me. I feel like I go way iver the top with this but it seems that this is the ruling. My Question is about washing the bathroom floor when there is najasa on it. My Mother always did it like this: She took a bucket, filled it with water and cleaning product, dipped a rag in it rinsed it a little bit and then mopped the floor with it. Then she washed the rag in the same bucket with the same water and mopped the floor a seccond time and then she did the same a 3. Time. There was never a problem with this as our floor was always clean afterwards. But now I live alone and after some research it seems as if this is wrong. Hanafi scholars say that you have to wash and rinse the rag and the bucket and use new water after mopping the floor once so you can then mop the second time and then wash and rinse the rag and the bucket again and use new water again for the third time. Isn’t this a little over the top as it is way more work and you have to use much more water which costs money? Also I did all this but now I realized that my floor will still be regarded najis because scholars say you can only mop smooth surfaces but the floor in my bath is not completly smooth as it is a tiled floor which has cement grooves in between the smooth tiles which are a little bit deeper then the tiles. So how should I wash such a floor? Is it Still regarded najis now after I mopped 3× over it because of the deeper cement grooves? If yes, how should I wash such a floor? I can’t just flood my whole floor with water to clean it. That will make a mess. Isn’t this all too much?
I also have a second question. Is ear wax on the part of the ear which needs to be washed in Ghusl a barrier to water? I did Ghusl and after that I prayed. Then it came to my mind that I couldn’t remember having washed my ears in Ghusl. I wasn’t entirely sure but I also found some ear wax on my ear so either I didn’t wash them or I did but there remained ear wax. So was this ear wax a barrier to the water? Do I need to repeat that salah after having washed my ears?
