Touching A Dry Napaak (Impure) Object With Dry Hands


If I touch an object with wet hands that were most likely Napaak and I forget to clean it and some months later I touch the same object with dry hands and then drive a friend’s car thereafter, does the steering wheel and everything I touch whilst driving also become Napaak?


Touching a dry impure object with dry hands will not make your hands Napaak unless the impurity gets on your hands from the Napaak object and a sign of impurity is found on your hand. 

Similarly any other object that you touch with that hand, if any sign of impurity is found on that object then it will be Napaak, otherwise it will not be Napaak.
