semi-blood fluid nose bleed


Sometimes yellowish type fluid drops (like a blood drop in teaspoon water) leak from my left nostril. Does that breaks wudu, ablution?


The bleeding from the nose does not break the wudu according to the majority of scholars: including the Prophet’s companions and the Maliki, Shafi`i, and the Hanbali schools.

However, the Hanafi School differs; they say that wudu is broken.

You are free to choose the former view unless the bleeding is profuse, in which case, you should wash your nose and renew the wudu.

Having said this, I would also advise you to choose to wash the nostrils if it is hard for you. The rules are relaxed only because of hardship.

Almighty Allah Knows best.
