Before I explain about “does eating break wudu?”, I will quote some hadiths about eating, drinking and wudu so that you understand the basic argumentation.
Some hadiths about eating, drinking and wudu that I mean are as follows:
رَأَيْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَأْكُلُ عَرْقًا مِنْ شَاةٍ ثُمَّ صَلَّى وَلَمْ يُمَضْمِضْ وَلَمْ يَمَسَّ مَاءً
I saw the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam eating a piece of goat meat. Then he prayed, without rinsing his mouth and without touching the water at all.
أن رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ شَرِبَ لَبَنًا فَلَمْ يُمَضْمِضْ وَلَمْ يَتَوَضَّأْ وَصَلَّى
Allah’s Messenger (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam drank milk, then he did not rinse his mouth nor did wudu, then he prayed.
All readers! If we understand some of the hadiths above, we can conclude that eating and drinking does not break wudu.
Now, if you ask me, “do you have to perform wudu after eating?”, the answer is “No. You don’t have to do wudu again after eating.” The reason is very simple: because eating does not break wudu.
All readers! That’s a brief explanation of “do you have to perform wudu after eating?” and some important things about it. Do you understand? If you want to ask, please ask!
I think that’s enough for this article. Hope it is useful. Amen.
See you again in the next article!
