QUESTION: WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT NULLIFY MY WUDU?
SHEIKH ASSIM AL-HAKEEM: It is passing urine, defecating, passing wind or anything that comes out of your private part. It is sleeping, eating camel’s meat. If you do any of these five things, then your Wudu is nullified. The others are an issue of dispute. If I touch my wife, no problem except in the Shafi’ school of thought. The Prophet (SAW) used to kiss his wife and goes to pray without renewing his Wudu which means it is intact. Moisturizing my body as a man or woman, as long as I don’t nullify these things, it’s okay. Some say, ‘’what about touching the private part?’’, it is an issue of dispute. If one does it out of lust and desire, yes it breaks the Wudu. If not, it is an issue of dispute and I believe that it doesn’t affect your Wudu.
May Allah guide us all. Aameen.
