Mufti Sahab, in one of your answers you had written that if impurity geets on electronic items it can be wiped off with a wet cloth since washing the electronics could destroy them. I have two question in this regard 1) Is it possible to use a wet tissue instead of a cloth? Secondly, if there is impuirty on more than one electronic item, can all impure electronics be wiped clean with the same wet cloth?

الجواب حامداومصليا
If electronic items become impure with then there are two way to purify them. 1) By wiping off the Nijasah with a clean cloth (preferably wet and then dry). 2) To use a tissue (preferably wet one first and dry one later.
If the impurity has been absorbed by the tissue or cloth then it will become Najis and it should not be used for purifying another object unless it is washed with clean water three times.
And Allah knows best.
