As-Salam Alaykum.

I have a problem with drops of urine coming out after passing the urine despite me making sure that the last drop has ceased. Drops come out sometimes whilst making Wudu. Would my Wudu be intact and can I pray in this situation? Much appreciated.

It is compulsory for men to ensure and be personally satisfied that the last drops of urine have ceased after passing urine. If drops of urine come out whilst making wudu this will invalidate your wudu[1], you have to stop making wudu and clean yourself and change any clothing on which urine has dropped on and ensure that the last drops have ceased before re-starting wudu.


However, if this occurs frequently and consistently for longer periods e.g. for an entire period of a fard prayer time (eg from the beginning of Asr time until the end of Asr time) then you may be classed as ‘excused’(ma’dhur)for which there are separate criteria, conditions, and concessional rulings.
