[Q 127] Uncertainty in Wudu Break During Salah


If someone realised after praying Salah (not during) that they broke their wudu.
Would they need to repeat their Salah?
For example, if this person was bleeding in a place that wouldn’t be noticeable during prayer but they don’t know if the bleeding started during the prayer or after completing the prayer.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


If someone sees blood on their body or clothes after prayer, and they are not sure if this blood came out during the prayer, and there is no indication, then it is not necessary to repeat the prayer. It will be assumed that the blood came out after the prayer.

However, if it becomes clear through some indication that the blood had come out during or before the prayer, invalidating the ablution, then this prayer will have to be repeated.

It is stated in Bada’i al-Sina’i:

 و لو اطلع علی نجاسۃ فی ثوبہ اکثر من قدرالدرھم ولم یتیقن وقت اصابتہا لایعید شیئا من الصلاۃ

 [بدائع الصنائع,1/78,دارالکتب العلمیہ،بیروت]

It is stated in Al-Mabsut:

من رأی فی ثوبہ نجاسۃ لایدری متی اصابتہ لایلزمہ اعادۃ شیء من الصلوات۔
