What Breaks Wudu?

The first important thing about “does crying break wudu?” what I will explain now is “what breaks wudu?”. I want you to understand that first before you read more explanations in this article because that is the basic thing in this discussion that must be well understood.

In general, if we read some Islamic legal literature regarding wudu, we will find an explanation that there are six things that can break wudu. The six things I mean are as follows:

One: something that comes out of two openings: the front hole (penis and vagina) and the back hole (anus).

In general, what comes out of the front and back holes is urine, feces, and so on.

We can find this explanation in the following Quranic verse:

أَوْ جَاءَ أَحَدٌ مِنْكُمْ مِنَ الْغَائِطِ

“Or one of you has come from the bathroom.” (Al-Maidah: 6).

Two: loss of consciousness due to sleep, madness, and so on.

We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

فَمَنْ نَامَ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ

“Whoever sleeps, let him perform wudu.”

Three: if the skin of a man and a woman who is not a mahram touch without a barrier.

We can find this explanation in the following Quranic verse:

أَوْ لَامَسْتُمُ النِّسَاءَ

“Or you touch a girl.” (Al-Maidah: 6).

Four: touching the human penis, vagina, or anus using the palm of the hand or the inside of the finger.

We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

مَنْ مَسَّ ذَكَرَهُ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ

Whoever holds his penis, let him perform wudu.

Five: touching unclean objects, such as urine, feces, and so on.

Six: vomiting and nosebleeds.

We can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : مَنْ أَصَابَهُ قَيْءٌ , أَوْ رُعَافٌ , أَوْ قَلَسٌ , أَوْ مَذْيٌ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ , ثُمَّ لْيَبْنِ عَلَى صَلَاتِهِ وَهُوَ لَا يَتَكَلَّمُ . أَخْرَجَهُ اِبْنُ مَاجَهْ

From Aishah radiyallahu anha, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam has said, “Whoever is exposed to vomiting, nosebleeds (blood coming out of the nose), qalas (fluid that comes from the throat that fills the mouth or other things but it is not vomit) or madhiy, then let him perform wudu and then continue his prayer as long as he does not speak.” This hadith was narrated by Ibn Majah.

That is a brief explanation of “what breaks wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.

Hadith About Crying

The second important thing about “does crying break wudu?” what I will explain now is hadith about crying. I want you to understand that now so you understand what Islam says about crying.

There are many hadiths about crying. Of course, I’m not going to explain it all now. In this article, I will only explain three hadiths.

The three hadiths about crying that I mean are as follows:

عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ ؛ شَهِدْتُ بِنْتًا لِلنَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ تُدْفَنُ وَرَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ جَالِسٌ عِنْدَ الْقَبْرِ فَرَأَيْتُ عَيْنَيْهِ تَدْمَعَانِ . رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ

From Anas radliyallahu anhu, he said, “I have witnessed the daughter of Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam buried and the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sitting on the edge of the grave. I then saw his eyes shed tears.” The hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari.

The hadith above explains that the Prophet Muhammad had cried when his daughter was buried. In other words, we can conclude that crying for the dead is permissible in Islam. Of course, that’s on condition that the crying is a natural cry.

عَنْ مُطَرِّفٍ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ الشِّخِّيْرِ عَنْ أَبِيْهِ قَالَ ؛ رَأَيْتُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يُصَلِّي وَفِيْ صَدْرِهِ أَزِيْزٌ كَأَزِيْزِ الْمِرْجَلِ مِنَ الْبُكَاءِ . أَخْرَجَهُ الْخَمْسَةُ إِلَّا اِبْنُ مَاجَهْ

From Mutharrif bin Abdillah bin Asy-Syikhkhir from his father, he said, “I once saw the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam praying and in his chest there was a sound of crying like the sound of water boiling in a pot because of crying.” The hadith was narrated by five people except Ibn Majah (Ahmad, Abu Daud, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa’i).

عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ ، قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : عَيْنَانِ لاَ تَمَسُّهُمَا النَّارُ أَبَدًا : عَيْنٌ بَاتَتْ تَكْلَأ الْمُسْلِمِيْنَ فِي سَبِيْلِ اللهِ ، وَعَيْنٌ بَكَتْ مِنْ خَشْيَةِ اللهِ

From Anas bin Malik radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Two eyes that will forever not be touched by the fire of Hell are the eyes that guard the Muslims all night in war and the eyes that cry for fear of Allah.”

The above hadith explains that the two eyes that guard Muslims in battle and the two eyes that cry out of fear of Allah will not be touched by the fires of Hell.

The hadith above explains that the Prophet Muhammad once cried while he was praying. In other words, we can conclude that crying while praying does not break the prayer. Of course, that’s on condition that the crying is a natural cry.

That is a brief explanation of the hadith about crying. As Muslims, we must understand that.
