Question

As-Salamu alaykum. If woman's hair is visible and a non-mahram sees her hair, does this break her ablution? Does she have to do it again before offering her prayer?

Answer


Does exposing woman's hair break ablution?

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

Answering your question, Sheikh Ahmad Kutty, a senior lecturer and an Islamic Scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states:

Exposing one’s hair does not have any adverse effect on ablution. So, there is no need for you to renew your ablution if this happened.

Allah Almighty knows best.
