Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: Assalamu alaykum

Does looking at the reflection of one’s nakedness break wudu?

Answer:  ​Walaikum assalam,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.

No, neither looking at one’s nakedness (awra)—such as one’s private parts—nor looking at its reflection break wudu.

Wudu is only broken by specific things—such as the exiting of filth, flowing blood or pus, sleeping lying down, . Please find related answers in the SeekersHub Answers –

And Allah is the giver of success and facilitation.
