As salaamu alaykum.
I was reading through a book entitled "The Essential Hanafi Handbook of Fiqh" and came across the chapter on "Things that Break Wudhu". I have a few q uestions regarding it.
1) The second thing that it mentions as breaking Wudhu is the following,
"That Najaasat which comes out from any part of the body and then flows to a place (on the body) which (in either Wudhu or Ghusl) must be washed. (The, the blood or pus which wells to the surface of a wound and congeals without following out over the surface will not break Wudhu)."
Does this then mean if one were to bleed from an area not washed during Wudhu, the thigh for example, and the blood, however much, did not flow onto an area washed during Wudhu, our Wudhu would not break?
Furthemore, what if one were wounded in an area that one normally had to wash during Wudhu, such as the forearm, but the blood welled up to the surface but not out onto the non-wounded portions of the forearm. Would one have to make Wudhu? And does the answer differ based on just how large the wound is?
2) The third thing listed as a nullifier of wudhu is "More than a moutful of vomit". It then says,
"If one should vomit a number of times, a little amount each time (less than a mouthful) then, according to Imam Muhammad, if there should be (for all the instances of vomiting) only one cause, (nausea for example), the amounts should be added together (and if the total comes to more than a mouthful, then Wudhu breaks)."
In order for one to add the little amounts of vomit that one may have brought up each time, is one obliged to spit out the vomit so that one can observe with one's eyes exactly how much came up? Or should one merely estimate without necessarily spitting it out?
3) The fourth nullifier of wudhu listed was
"Sleeping; either on one's back or side, or propped up againts something which, if removed would lead to one's falling. However, sleeping in a standing or sitting position without any kind of prop, or in the prescribed Sunnat positions of Ruku or Sajda, will not break Wudhu".
What if one were to sleep on one's stomach? Would that also break wudhu, even though no mention of sleeping on one's stomach has been made in the above?
If some of our Ulema who frequent this board or other knowledgeable brothers and/or sisters could answer the questions that I have asked above, I would appreciate it.
