Asalamu Alykum how I should clean electronic devices such as mobile phone, computer etc as they have become impure as using water for cleaning will damage them.



In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

It will be permissible to remove the impurity by wiping it with a piece of cloth or tissue paper. The ruling in the Hanafi Fiqh is that any solid impurity which falls on a slippery surface like glass or mirror then it will be permissible the remove the impurity by wiping it. (Nurul Idah p.54)
