Does touching private parts break wudu?

Home / Q&A / Does touching private parts break wudu?


I understand that wudu is invalidated if you touch your private parts. Is this also applicable when after a bath one applies some cream or oil on the buttocks? Does that also invalidate the wudhu? Or if your hand accidentally touches the front part?

Zaynab El-Kateb:

Putting cream over the buttocks does not affect wudu. Shaikh Ibn Al-Uthaymeen says that touching the private parts does not affect wudu except if it is with lust. Other Scholars say it breaks Wudu.
