Does my husband nullify my ablution (Wudu)?


Dear brother,i just want to know if my husband brakes my WUDU?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Your question is not clear. What do you mean by your husband breaking your Wudu? It appears you wish to query the concept of Masse Imrah, i.e., husband touching the wife while she is in the state of Wudu.

Does the touching break the wife’s Wudu or not?

If this is your intended query then according to the Hanafi School of thought (Mazhab) husband touching his wife does not invalidate Wudu.

And Allah Taāla Knows Best
