      Carry a bag of wet wipes, and as soon as he hands you the phone get wiping rigerously, saying "errrhhh you dirty kuf! I don't wanna catch no pork lurgies..."

      Or maybe not.

      Here's an alternative... how about not being so uber sensitive over this unless you actually see him slobbering on the phone whilst eating a bacon butty?

        You're way overthinking this. Just wash your hands before you eat and do wudhu before you pray.

            I share a telephone at work.

            And other equipment too.

            My colleague however eats halal. I am loath to pick up the phone and indeed touch anything he had previously defiled with his claws.

              You know 1 in 5 people don't wash their hands after going to the lav? It's not just your pig munching work buddy you've got to worry about.

                Try not to eat the phone. Make sure you wash your hands before you eat. And don't use hand sanitizer.

                      Most do not wash their hands. I was once going to the toilet and I heard a guy come out but I did not hear the hand dryer so I know he did not wash his hands. And he went straight to the kitchen after leaving the toilet. It is a good thing that I do not eat or drink anything of theirs.

                      And then there is this fat thing that goes to the toilet every morning to do something he should have done at home and he does not wash his hands. He then makes everybody tea and, also, he squeezes the tea bag with his fingers. He is nasty. I hate that kid. I once had to shake his hand.

                        I used to wipe my desk and work equipment regularly.

                        I used to gag not because people eat bacon but there are people with poor hygiene.

                        What are you going to do about the door handles they touch? The train you use for commute? The chair you seat on many non Muslims have sat on?

                        I always said no to people making tea/coffee, even if it's a Muslim. I like making my own.

                        Also, if you eat put, buy sandwiches, some are sorted by hand (maybe they wear gloves, maybe they don't).

                        ​​​​​​
                        Sometimes people have to go to the toilet because it's part of human nature. Some have bowel problems so they don't have a choice.

                          Forget washing hands, there should be a sink in every individual toilet because how does it make sense to touch your clothes and a door handle and then wash your hands.

                          Weird
