Do I need to rub the inner corner of my eye during wudu? What if there is soft mucus there?

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




The corner of your eye is considered the inside part of your eye. For this reason, it is not comparable to the rest of your face, hence why there is no obligation to wash it.[1]
