Using tissue paper to clean impurity

13-4-2003 | IslamWeb


Is it permissible to use tissue papers for cleaning impurity?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

After answering the call of nature one may use stones, tissue papers and the like to remove impurities provided they remove the impurities totally and clean the area. Therefore, if the tissue paper removes impurities from the area then it is considered clean even with the availability of the water. However, it is safer to use water since it removes the impurities perfectly.
Allah knows best.
