Does Your Wudu Break If Your Spouse Sees You Naked?

Hanafi Fiqh

Question: Does your wudu break if your wife see’s you naked. Also if showering with your wife, can you make wudu while she is still there?


Answer: assalamu `alaykum

No, your ablution does not break if your wife sees you naked.

The underlying legal reason for the nullification of ablution is the exiting of filth. This meaning is not met in the situation you describe.

As for making ablution while showering with one’s spouse, this is valid. However, one should cover their minimal nakedness – which is the area between the navel and the knee for men – when performing ablution. Also note that taking a full shower suffices in fulfilling the obligations of ablution.
