A person cellphone fell in a toilet pan, but he managed to retrieve it in time. Marks of water can be found on the screen. Obviously, he cannot wash the phone. What will be the method of purifying such a phone?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
If the impurity is of such a nature that it has a form and physical structure (Jirm), one should remove the impurity by wiping it.
The stains/marks of impurity will not affect the pure state of the cell phone if one cannot remove the stains and marks.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
