Answered by: Ustaadha Bint Salih 



Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

Can you please inform if nasal mucus which comes from a runny nose, or dry mucus in the nose is pure or is it impure.
If it touches skin or clothes, does it make the clothes dirty?

And if it touches skin and clothes, does it invalidate wudhu?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

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




The mucus of the nose, whether moist or dry, is considered pure and will not make the clothes or skin impure. Its contact does not invalidate the wudhu.


Only Allah knows best
