Touching ones private area

بســـم اللــه الرحــمــن الـرحـــيــم

◾️Does touching ones testicles, back passage or the private of another invalidate the Wudhū?◾️

Answered by Shaykh Abu Hamza Hassan bin Muhammed Ba Shu’ayb – may Allah preserve him –


Is touching the testicles and back passage and similarly touching someone else’s private; like when a woman touches her husband or cleans her small child.

Does this invalidate the Wudhū?


This does not invalidate the Wudhū upon the most correct of positions of the people of knowledge.
