Question:

Doubts on whether an area of the body is pure or not 

 Answer:

Bismillah

There is a principle in Islamic jurisprudence which is:

“Certainty is not lifted by a doubt.” (Al Ashbah Wan Nadhair p.60)

Therefore if one is uncertain of a particular area of being impure, then such a doubt will not make the area impure, as the certainty of an area of the body will not be lifted by the doubt of it being impure.

Only Allah Knows Best
