Things which invalidate ablution

 

Wudhu becomes void on account of the following seven things:

Passing of urine

Excretion

Passing wind from the rear

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

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

Istihaza – which will be dealt with later

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