Does Current Break Wudu?
Whether the discharge from the vagina invalidates the ablution is one of the questions people wonder. It has three openings according to the anatomy of the female genital area. These are the urinary excretion channel, anus and vagina.
According to the Quran, ablution is invalidated in case of urine and feces and gas. In addition, ablution is broken if blood comes from women in cases such as menstruation and puerperium. However, there is no evidence as to whether other discharge from the vagina invalidates the ablution or not.
According to the Hanafi sect, if the discharge from the vagina is not mixed with urine, blood and semen, it is defined as clean discharge. For this reason, it does not break the ablution. However, there are also scholars who claim that vaginal discharge is impure.
Although there are various approaches regarding whether the discharge coming from the vagina is clean or not, scholars agree that if it goes outside, it will invalidate the ablution. As a result of the researches carried out by the High Council of Religious Affairs, the discharge from the vagina does not come directly from the uterine area. This current is a physiological and natural condition that is secreted involuntarily from the lower region. For this reason, it is thought that this normal flow does not break the ablution.
Do Natural, Daily Vaginal Discharges Invalidate Wudu?
According to the Hanafi sect, normal wetness from the vagina area of women should be evaluated as discharge from people’s nose or mouth. For this reason, if the wetness is clean, people’s ablution is not broken. However, according to the Hanafi madhhab, in cases such as urine, feces, blood, pus or gas coming out of the front and back areas of people, ablution is broken and it must be taken again.
