Fatwa ID: 01259
Answered by Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
I am a student of the Quran and need to be in the state of wudhu in order to hold the book. However, I also have diabetes and I take blood sugar tests about 10 times a day. The details are as follows: I pierce the skin of my finger with a needle, whereby a small bubble of blood emerges (about 2 square mm). Sometimes the blood doesn't come out by itself, but I have to force it out by pressing on the finger. The bubble of blood is so small that it doesn't flow in any direction, even if I move my finger.
Do these blood sugar tests break the wudhu?
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
The blood which comes out after an injection will break the wudhu even though it may be a little bubble. (Ahsanul Fatawa p.38 v.2, Nizamul Fatawa p.44 v.1 & Fatawa Rahimiyah p.268 v.4)
