Does Wudū break if I spit out blood from my gums? My gums bleed after I brush my teeth if I am in the state of Wudū. Is my wudū broken?

Questioner: Shabbir from UK


بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم

الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

A person’s wudū will be nullified if blood is preponderant over the saliva [red coloured] or equal to the saliva [pink coloured]. If the saliva is preponderant [yellow coloured] wudū will not be nullified, as mentioned in the nullifiers of wudū in Nūr al-Idāh:

[Wudū will be nullified by] blood which is preponderant over saliva or equal to it.

[Nūr al-Idāh, Chapter of the nullifiers of wudū]
