Impurity on Hands After Intercourse

CategoriesTaharah [427]

Fatwa ID: 04663

Answered by: Mufti Jamal Ahmed




If before sexual intercourse spouses touch each other’s private parts but no sexual or any other fluids get on hands and if after that they touch bedding and other things do those things become najis and do they need to be washed? There is no najis on the hands they are dry but just touched each other’s privates but not directly where urine or other fluids come from.



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful





A Muslim can never be physically impure including his private part whether he is in a state of major impurity unless he has some impurity on his body, then that part of the body will be impure.

The prophet peace and blessings are upon him, said “Verily a believer does not become impure.” Mishkat, vol. 1, pg.100, Hadith no. 451, Darul Kutub al Ilmiyah.

In your case, the hands will not become impure unless some impurity is discharged and touches your hands.



Only Allah knows best.
