Do I Have to Obey My Parents If They Stop Me From Listening to Religious Talks?

I Worry That Water from the Commode May Splash on to My Ablution Jug. Should I Wash It?

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaikum

After using the commode I worry about whether the water from flushing has splashed on to the vessel I use to make ablution. Should I wash the vessel?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

Assume that such water didn’t affect your person, clothing or pouring jug. Practically, keep the jug slightly away from the toilet so that your heart can be at rest. Ignore misgivings and don’t investigate.
