Things which invalidate Wudhu

329. Wudhu becomes void on account of the following seven things:

  1. Passing of urine.

  2. Excretion.

  3. Passing wind from the rear.

  4. A sleep, deep enough to restrict sight and hearing. However, if the eyes do not see anything, but the ears can hear, Wudhu does not become void.

  5. Things on account of which a person loses his sensibility, like insanity, intoxication or unconsciousness.

  6. Istihaza – which will be dealt with later.

  7. Janabat, and, as a recommended precaution, every state which requires Ghusl.
