An excused person for wudhu in Salaah

Question:

Assalaamu Alaikum,

if someone has a chronic wound on his hind part ,below the lumbosacral region and it bleeds continuously so that one has to place a tissue or cotton there every time to protect one’s underwear from getting soiled with blood that comes from that wound. The bleeding is not flowing in nature but if one places a tissue say now then after 10 or 15mins a small spot or few small spots of blood, or rarely a large spot can be seen on the¬†tissue. Is Salaat valid in such a case, I mean does wuzu remain intact and can a person still pray if after every 5,10 or 15mins or even sometimes 30mins one sees a spot of blood. Please reply soon as it is a matter of Salaat and the person is unable to concentrate on the prayer and validity of wuzu remains the main concern

Answer:

Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

This person will be treated as an excused person and Salah will be valid in this case. This means that wazu will be valid although there is the emission of blood. However, in this case, when the time of any specific Salaah comes to an end, the wazu will be considered as broken, and the individual will need to repeat a fresh wuzu for another Salaah.

And Allah knows best,
