Things That Invalidate Wudhu – Does Graneds understand about some of the things that cancel our Wudhu? Exactly, as Muslims, Sinaumed’s should be able to understand what are the things that can break ablution. Ablution is a way for Muslims to purify themselves or rid themselves of small impurities which are one of the legal requirements for prayer and other services.
This is because ablution is one of our conditions that must be valid before praying and other worship. If the ablution that we do turns out to be incorrect or has been cancelled, then the worship we are doing is invalid and cannot even be considered a reward. However, some people may not understand things related to ablution, including things that can invalidate it.
This worship can be said to be invalid if your ablution is also cancelled, which is why Sinaumed’s must know the basics of ablution, including things that cancel ablution. Then, what are the things that can break ablution? The following is an explanation of things that invalidate ablution and not only that, this article will also explain the pillars of ablution.
Things That Invalidate Wudu
When we do ablution, it means our bodies are clean and pure and we are ready to pray or face Allah SWT, including prayer services and so on. However, there are a number of things that can paralyze or invalidate ablution if Sinaumed’s does something intentionally or unintentionally. Here are some things that break ablution, whether intentional or unintentional. When reading the Qur’an or eliminating minor hadas, Sinaumed’s is required to perform ablution for prayer or other worship. Here are some things in Islam that can break ablution:
Vomiting is the discharge of food or drink from the stomach through the mouth. Not only on an empty stomach, vomiting after Sinaumed’s ablution can also inhibit it. However, there are two opinions in the Hanafi school that if a person vomits in a mouthful, that vomiting invalidates ablution. On the other hand, according to the Maliki and Shafi’i schools of thought, vomiting cannot invalidate ablution. This is because the Prophet once vomited once after ablution and did not repeat his ablution.
2. Lost Consciousness
Loss of consciousness in question is madness, fainting, drunkenness, and other things that can paralyze or weaken someone. Including sleeping, can also cancel ablution. This is because when Sinaumed’s sleeps, some limbs become dysfunctional and our bodies become unconscious. According to the hadith, Abudawood said: “The eyes are the guardians of the anus. Therefore, everyone who sleeps must perform ablution.”
3. The discharge of Hadas from the genitals
Anything that comes from the genitals, such as urine, bowel movements, bowel movements, semen, wadis, and even farts, can cancel our cleansing. They all hada, some small, and some big. For large waste, Sinaumed’s needs to use an essential ablution tub for cleaning. Abu Hurairah said in the hadith of the Messenger of Allah, “If he is unclean to do cleaning, Allah will not accept someone else’s prayer from you.”
In addition, it is also stated in the Al-Quran Surah Al-Maidah verse 6 as follows:
أَوْ جَاءَ أَحَدٌ مِنْكُمْ مِنَ الْغَائِطِ
Meaning: “Or one of you has come from the bathroom”.
4. Pus and blood come out
Blood and pus can invalidate a person’s ablution and cleanliness, even if not through the genitals or mouth. Wudhu becomes invalid if blood flows or comes out of a person’s body and needs to be cleaned or purified again. In fact, if Sinaumed’s only emits one or two drops, then you still need to do ablution again by cleaning it. This is because of a hadith that once said that the Prophet “must make ablution against all the blood that flows.”
5. Touching the genitals
When Sinaumed’s has finished ablution, do not touch the genitals, either your own or other people’s genitals. Basically genitals are unclean and hadas, so it is forbidden to touch them so that our ablution is not canceled without any restrictions. The thing that cancels ablution is also explained in the hadith narrated by Ahmad and Ibn Hibban that Rasulullah SAW said,
مَنْ مَسَّ ذَكَرَهُ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ
“Whoever has his hands touching the private parts without any restrictions, it is obligatory to perform ablution.”
6. Laugh Out Loud
In general, when we pray and purify ourselves to worship Allah SWT, we need to maintain good manners. This behavior is contrary to our attitude when we want to pray to Allah SWT. That is why laughing loudly or laughing excessively is considered impolite behavior. When going to worship we should prepare our hearts and bodies to worship Allah SWT with wisdom and good behavior. Laughter that shows people are happy if done excessively is also not good, especially when we want to worship Allah SWT.
7. Eat Camel Meat
Sinaumed’s needs to know that food that enters one’s mouth will leave stains in one’s mouth. This can be overcome by drinking water. However, if Sinaumed’s eats camel meat, he has to repeat it again for ablution. This is because when Sinaumed’s consumes cooked and raw camel meat, it will leave stains, aroma and so on, so it is necessary to perform ablution again.
It has been narrated in the hadith of Imam Ahmad that Allah’s Apostle said, “You eat camel meat and you are asked to perform ablution, and you eat goat meat and you are not asked to perform ablution.”
8. Bathing the corpse
If someone bathes a corpse then he has touched all parts of the body of the corpse. If the person has performed ablution and accidentally touches the corpse’s genitals, the ablution may be invalidated. He must repeat his ablution to be clean again. After washing the corpse, the person needs to do ablution again if he wants to pray for it. So, the previous ablution is not considered valid for the funeral prayer after washing it.
In the Hadith of Ibn Umar and Ibn Abbas, Abu Hurairah said, “At least he has to perform ablution because their hands are usually not safe from touching the genitals of corpses.”
9. Doubt When Wudu
During ablution, make sure everything on Gramed’s body is clean. However, if Sinaumed’s doubts about the cleanliness of Sinaumed’s’ body through Hadas, then the ablution will be cancelled. The Maliki School says that, “Whoever believes that he is holy, then if he doubts the Hadas then he must be cleansed again.”
10. It is mandatory to take a bath
The thing that invalidated the next ablution was the thing that made Sinaumed’s need to take a bath so he could remove Hadas from the body. Some things that nullify wudhu and it is obligatory to wash are unbelievers who enter into adultery, ejaculation, and Islam. If Sinaumed’s wants to do all of this, he must first take a Hadas Bath and then proceed with ablution. It is already in the Hanbali school and states that ablution is invalid if ablution is required except for death.
11. Contact with Non Mahram
Contact with other people who are not their mahram can invalidate ablution. That is why when Sinaumed’s is already performing ablution, it is best to take care not to come into contact with those who are not his mahram. If intentionally or unintentionally touches her mahram, then she has to repeat her ablution again. Based on the things that cancel ablution, Sinaumed’s must know very well who is his mahram and who is not his mahram.
أَوْ لَامَسْتُمُ النِّسَاءَ
Meaning: “It is forbidden to touch the skin with a man and a woman who have both grown up and are not their mahram (or you touch women).”
12. Menstrual Blood
Furthermore, what cancels ablution, which may be familiar to Muslim women, is the discharge of menstrual blood. The sudden discharge of menstrual blood will invalidate our ablution. Menstruation not only cancels ablution, but also prohibits women from worshiping and praying.
The prohibition of prayer and fasting for menstruating women is mentioned in a hadith of Aisha RA as follows:
مَا بَالُ الْحَائِضِ تَقْضِى الصَّوْمَ وَلاَ تَقْضِى الصَّلاَةَ فَق release قَالَتْ كَانَ يُصِيبُنَا ذَلِكَ فَنُؤْمَرُ بِقَضَاءِ الصَّوْمِ وَلاَ نُؤْمَرُ بِقَضَاءِ الصَّلاَةِ
Meaning: “Why does a menstruating woman make up her fast and not make up her prayer?” So Aisha replied, “Are you from the Haruriyah group?”
I replied, “I’m not Haruriyah,” but I was just asking.
He replied, “We were also menstruating before, so we were ordered to make up the fast and were not ordered to make up the prayer.” (Muslim HR).
13. Lost Mind
Those who lose their minds will be in something that invalidates ablution. This loss of consciousness can be caused by drunkenness, fainting, or madness. Missing will be one that invalidates ablution because this makes one behave outside of his awareness, so that a person does not know what he has done, that is why his ablution is considered invalid. Here is the hadith:
عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضي الله عنه قاَلَ كَانَ أَصْحَابُ رَسُولِ الله
يَنَامُونَ ثُمَّ يُصَلُّونَ وَلاَ يَتَ known
From Anas radhiyallahu ‘anhu said that: “The companions of Rasulullah SAW slept and then prayed without ablution” (HR. Muslim).
14. Falling asleep or losing consciousness
Not only that, falling asleep or losing consciousness is also a factor that invalidates ablution. If one is sleeping, whether lying down or sitting, this dream can invalidate the ablution bridge. When a person is asleep, his consciousness will disappear, so that he has to perform ablution in an orderly manner again.
15. Puerperal Blood
It is important for women to know that ablution will be invalidated if puerperal bleeding occurs. The law for women who give birth is the same as the law for women who are menstruating. It is unlawful to pray, walk around, divorce Zima and divorce her husband. For those who have ablution, this will certainly cancel the ablution. So Sinaumed’s has to wait until the end of the child’s birth date, then Sinaumed’s can return to ablution and worship.
16. Pus Out Of The Genital
Apart from blood, there is also pus in this case which can invalidate ablution. Pus that comes out of the genitals or anus, especially pus mixed with blood, is very important to repeat the ablution phase in an orderly manner. This is because of the hadith, and the Prophet said, “Wudu must be performed for all the blood that flows.”
Pillars of Wudu
If the pillars of ablution are properly maintained, then the ablution will be considered valid. If not, ablution is canceled and needs to be repeated. These are the pillars of ablution that Sinaumed’s must know so that his ablution is valid before performing worship:
1. Reading Intentions
Just like when we worship other things, we must first say or have our intentions before starting the worship to Allah SWT. The practice of ablution also begins with an intention that must be read in an orderly manner. Reading the intention must also be done solemnly so that ablution is considered valid. Intention is the first step that is sometimes underestimated by many people.
Sinaumed’s needs to know, if all practices are not well-intentioned for Allah SWT then they will be in vain or invalid. In practice, intentions are not only words in our mouths but also sincerity in our hearts to worship Allah, including with the intention of ablution. The following is the intention of ablution that Sinaumed’s must know:
نَوَيْتُ الْوُضُوْءَ لِرَفْعِ الْحَدَثِ الْاَصْغَرِ فَرْضًا للَّهِ تَعَالَى
Nawaitul wudhu’a lirof’il hadasil ashghori fardhol lillaahi ta’aala.
Meaning: “I intend to perform ablution to remove small hadas fardu because of Allah Ta’aala.”
2. Washing Face
After reading his intentions well, then the next pillar is washing your face. Wash your face with water from forehead to chin. This area is the limit when washing your face during ablution. So don’t let Sinaumed’s forget the part of washing your face while doing ablution because this is the pillars of ablution that must be done.
3. Wash both hands up to the elbows
Next, wash your hands up to the elbows. Washing starts with the Sinaumed’s finger or elbow. Try to get water from your fingers to your elbows. If Sinaumed’s wears long sleeves, stretch your arms around your elbows so that the washing water hits your elbows. Do this part in an orderly manner.
4. Rubbing the head
Then rub Sinaumed’s head. Rub Sinaumed’s’ head from head to toe. This is in accordance with the hadith of the prophet as follows:
عَنِ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ بْنِ شُعْبَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَوَضَّأَ فَمَسَحَ بِنَاصِيَتِهِ وَعَلَى العٍمَامةِ
Meaning: “From the friend of Al-Mughirah bin Syu’bah RA, in fact Rasulullah SAW performed ablution and rubbed the top of his head and his priesthood.” (HR. Muslim).
5. Washing the Feet Up to the Ankles
The next pillar is washing the feet to the toes. Wash Sinaumed’s feet thoroughly and properly to clean the soles and toes. Sinaumed’s doesn’t need to wash his knees, Sinaumed’s only needs to wash his toes.
6. Perform ablution in an orderly manner
Cleaning means that all parts and openings are cleaned in the order and manner. Do not change or reverse the order of ablution. Everything must be done properly and correctly, without neglecting anything. After complying with the rules, ablution can be called valid.
Well, that’s an explanation of things that break ablution. PAakh Sinaumed’s already understand it? If Sinaumed’s already has a baby, then teach him as early as possible because ablution is the main thing for Muslims to continue other services. So we better get used to it and do it right.
