Will touching an old woman break a person's wudhu

on: 01/12/2019

Question: What is the ruling of an old woman's wuduu when she shakes the hand of her cousin or other relative who is also an old man. Is the wuduu broken or not?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Answer: Her wuduu is broken since a cousin is not considered as mahram. Touching someone from the opposite gender who is not a mahram will break a person's wuduu.

باب: أسباب الحدث

هي أربعة.............. الثالث: التقاء بشري الرجال و المرأة إلاَّ محرما

[لقول الله تعالى: أو لامست النساء]

[مغني المحتاج/v.1/ص١١٨]

One of the thing that can break wuduu is when the skin of a man & woman touches one another. Both of their wuduu will be broken unless the other is their mahram.
