Does Dried Thick White Vaginal Discharge Nullify Wudu?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel 


If the vaginal white discharge is a little bit thick and you can scratch it with your nail, does it nullify wudu or not?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

I pray you are well.

White vaginal discharge – even if has dried – does not invalidate wudu. It is considered to be a form of sweating of the vagina walls.

However, if you want to do wudu or renew it upon seeing it, it would be recommended, but not necessary, especially if there are chances to fall in doubt and misgivings. Rest assured; it does not invalidate wudu. [Ibn ‘Abidin, Radd al-Muhtar]
