I know if a girl who isn't your mother or sister touches breaks your wudu?
I try to keep my wudu, but sometimes it happens accidently.
So I want to know does they break your wudu if was accidently?

If you're Shafi, yes.

If you aren't, no.

As Salaamu Alaykum,

Those major scholars of Islaam who maintain that the wudhu' of a man is broken by touching a woman are;

Abdullah Ibn Mas'ood, Abdullah ibn 'Umar, Az-Zuhri, Imaam Shaafi'ee and his companions, Zayd ibn Aslam and others.

This is also in accordance to Imaam Shafi'ee.

Those who maintain that it does not nullify the wudhu' are;

'Ali ibn Abi Taalib, Ibn 'Abbas, 'Ataa', Taawoos, Abu Haneefah, Abu Yusuf, Ibn Taymiyyah, Imaam Tabari, Mujaahid and others.

This is in accordance to Imaam Abu Hanifa.

There is of course a third stance; touching a woman with shahwah (desire) breaks the wudhu.

This difference arises due to the different interpretation of this Ayah:


"...But if you are ill or on a journey or any of you comes from answering the call of nature, or you have been in contact with women and you find no water, then perform Tayammum with clean earth and rub therewith your faces and hands..."

(Al-Ma'idah 5:6)
