Light sleep whilst having Wudhu


Sometimes while I’m in a state of purity and waiting for the prayer, I sleep a light sleep whilst I’m sitting. I can still hear those around me but I dream dreams and quickly awaken.

Does purity get nullified in such situation?

May Allah reward you with good.


It doesn’t nullify (your Wudhu) as long as you still feel what’s going on around you.
