585 I read in a book that you can do Istinja with toilet paper? I assumed you had to do it with water?
The principle behind doing Istinja is to remove all types of filth from your private parts.

Performing Istinja with water is Mustahab (desirable). Out of all the permissible items for performing Istinja, water is the most cleansing. However to do it with such things such as tissue paper is also permissible, providing the filth is fully wiped clean.

It is important to remember that it is obligatory to perform Istinja with water, if the filth has spread out from its point of exit by more than the size of a dirham (approximately a circle of 6cm radius as mentioned by some contemporary Scholars).
