Do I Need to Make Ghusl Due to Splashes of Impure Water?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat

Question

If I get impure water splashes from an eastern toilet on me do I need to make ghusl?

Answer

No, you do not need to perform a ghusl for this. You should pour water over the area and assume it is pure. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]

It would be a good idea to take a course on purity and prayer (Essentials of Worship) with us. Studying fiqh with an experienced teacher makes life a lot easier, and these minor niggles disappear.

May Allah bless you with the best of both worlds.
