Does lying down break Wudhu?
In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind
Yes, one may lie down in the state of wuḍū' and this does not break their wuḍū' unless one falls asleep while lying down in a way that they cannot understand most of the speech around them (Marāqī al-Falāḥ, 39 and Jāmiʻ al-Tirmidhī, ḥadīth 77).
Only Allah knows best
