Hi all readers! Are you looking for an explanation of “does kissing break wudu?”? If your answer is “Yes”, congratulations! Now you are reading the right article. Why? Because that is what I will explain in this article. As Muslims, we must understand that. That’s why I wrote this article. So, you have to read it to the end.
Specifically, there are four important things about “does kissing break wudu?” which I will explain in this article. The four important things I mean are as follows:
Kissing in Islam
The first important thing about “does kissing break wudu?” what I will explain is kissing in Islam. I want you to understand that before you read any further explanation in this article because that is one of the main focuses of our discussion.
I think we all know what a kiss is. I won’t say much about it. In Islam, kissing is not allowed with everyone. It means certain people we can kiss and who we shouldn’t kiss.
In general, kissing should not be done with people who are not mahram, except with husband or wife. Kissing can only be done with a mahram. Mahrams are the types of people who should not be married. In several previous articles I have explained about mahram. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you read it.
Specifically, if you want to kiss your mahram, then it is better for you not to kiss their lips. You can kiss their cheek or forehead. That is one of the ethics in Islam that you must understand.
We can find an explanation of the example of kissing the forehead in the hadith below:
عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا : أَنَّ أَبَا بَكْرٍ الصِّدِّيْقَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَبَّلَ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهِ . رَوَاهُ الْبُخَارِيُّ
From Aisha radiyallahu anha, that indeed Abu Bakr radiyallahu anhu kissed the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after he died. This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari.
As for if you want to kiss your husband or your wife, then you can do that on any part of the body that is clean.
That’s a brief explanation of kissing in Islam. As Muslims, we must understand that.
Wudu in Islam
The second important thing about “does kissing break wudu?” what I will explain is wudu in Islam. I want you to understand that before you read any further explanation in this article because that is one of the focus of our discussion now.
Specifically, I want to say that wudu is one of the rituals in Islam to purify the body. Wudu can eliminate minor hadas due to farting, urinating, sleepiness, and so on. In several previous articles I have explained a lot about wudu. I highly recommend you to read it.
In Islam, wudu has many virtues. We can find this explanation in the following hadiths:
عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : سَمِعْتُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُوْلُ : إِنَّ أُمَّتِيْ يَأْتُوْنَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ غُرَّا مُحَجَّلِيْنَ مِنْ أَثَرِ الْوُضُوْءِ ، فَمَنْ اِسْتَطَاعَ مِنْكُمْ أَنْ يُطِيْلَ غُرَّتَهُ فَلْيَفْعَلْ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ
From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, he said, “I have heard the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, “Verily my Ummah on the Day of Judgment will come with white light on all members of wudu (the limbs that are washed and rubbed in wudu) from the former wudu. Whoever of you is able to extend his white light, let him do that.” This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.
عَنْ عُمَرَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :مَا مِنْكُمْ مِنْ أَحَدٍ يَتَوَضَّأُ فَيُسْبِغُ الْوُضُوْءَ ثُمَّ يَقُوْلُ : أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ , إِلَّا فُتِحَتْ لَهُ أَبْوَابُ الْجَنَّةِ الثَّمَانِيَّةِ يَدْخُلُ مِنْ أَيِّهَا شَاءَ . أَخْرَجَهُ مُسْلِمٌ وَالتِّرْمِذِيُّ وَزَادَ : اَللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ التَّوَّابِيْنَ وَاجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِيْنَ
From Umar radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah alaihi wa sallam said, “It is not one of you who performs wudu then perfects it, then says, “I testify that there is no god but Allah who has no partner, and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger, “except the eight doors of Heaven have been opened for him. He can enter any door he wants.” The hadith is narrated by Muslim and at-Tirmidhi. He (at-Tirmidhi) added another editor, “O Allah, make me among those who repent and make me including those who are cleansed.”
Wudu is one of the most important rituals for Muslims. That’s why they are required to complete wudu if they perform wudu. We can find this explanation in the hadith below:
عَنْ أَنَسٍ بْنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : رَأَى النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ رَجُلًا وَفِيْ قَدَمِهِ مِثْلُ الظَّفْرِ لَمْ يُصِبْهُ الْمَاءَ , فَقَالَ : اِرْجِعْ فَأَحْسِنْ وُضُوْءَكَ . أَخْرَجَهُ أَبُوْ دَاوُدَ وَالنَّسَائِيُّ
From Anas bin Malik radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Prophet (Muhammad) salllahu alaihi wa sallam once saw someone on his feet there was something like a nail that was not doused with water. He then said, “Come back and complete your wudu!” The hadith is narrated by Abu Daud and an-Nasa’i.
That is a brief explanation of wudu in Islam. As Muslims, we must understand that.
Things That Break Wudu
The third important thing about “does kissing break wudu?” what I will explain are the things that break wudu. I want you to understand that because it is one of the important things about wudu that you have to understand.
In general, there are six things that can break wudu:
One: if something comes out of two holes: the front hole (penis and vagina) and the back hole (anus).
Two: loss of mind due to sleep, madness, and so on.
Three: if the skin of a man and a woman who is not a mahram touch without a barrier.
Four: touching the human penis, vagina, or anus using the palms of the hands or the inside of the fingers.
Five: touching unclean objects, such as urine, feces, and so on.
Six: vomiting and nosebleeds.
That’s a brief explanation of the things that break wudu. As Muslims, we must understand that.
