Let me tell you in the most simplest way I can.

First of all, whenever you take your cell phone to the bathroom I'm sure you do not touch it with your hand right after you have cleaned your waste with the very same hands.

Secondly, just taking anything with you in the bathroom doesn't make it impure. If that was true then we would be instructed to also change our clothes and scrub ourselves thoroughly every time we come out of the bathroom.

  • i’m unsure because today i used the bathroom and after using water i dry with tissue so when i dried it my hand touched the urine but when i touched my phone there was no wetness or trace of urine Commented Apr 27, 2021 at 19:02
  • How did your hand touch the urine? I'm sorry don't understand that.. Commented Apr 27, 2021 at 20:43
