Toilet Water Droplets


When we flush the toilet, while the water is forcing inside, splashes of water (Tiny Water drops) fall out on to the floor and all over other places, are these drops of water impure?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The splashes of water as a result of flushing the toilet are impure.

If it is possible to avoid the splashes of water, for example, by closing the lid of the toilet in the case of the high/sitting toilet, that should be done.

If it is not possible as is the case in a low pan toilet, the splashes should be cleaned through wiping or mopping.[1]


And Allah Ta‘ālā Knows Best.

مراقي الفلاح شرح نور الإيضاح (ص: ٦٦) 

"وعفي رشاش بول" ولو مغلظا "كرؤوس الإبر" ولو محل إدخال الخيط للضرورة وإن امتلأ منه الثوب والبدن ولا يجب غسله لو أصابه ماء كثير وعن أبي يوسف يجب ولو ألقيت نجاسة في ماء فأصابه من وقعها لا ينجسه ما لم يظهر أثر النجاسة

فقه العبادات - حنفي (ص: ٩٧)

يعفى عن رشاش البول كرؤوس الإبر في الثوب والبدن والمكان للضرورة ولو أصاب الماء لا ينجسه سواء أكان الماء جاريا أو راكدا

تحفة الملوك (ص: ٦١)

ورشاش الْبَوْل كرؤوس الإبر عَفْو
