Does exposing the satr break the wudhu

CategoriesTaharah [431]

Is my wudhu broken if someone (i.e. non mehram cousin) see’s my hair after doing wudhu?

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


The exposure and viewing of the satr, be it one’s own or another’s does not break wudhu regardless of whether it occurred accidentally or purposely.

Therefore, in the above-mentioned situation, even though your hair is satr, your wudhu will remain intact. (Maraqil Falah, p. 337)
