Does an erection break one’s wudoo’?

Question

do erections break one's wudu? please provide any evidences eg ahadith etc.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

The Standing Committee was asked a similar question and they said: 

Having an erection does not invalidate wudoo’ if nothing comes out of the penis, because an erection is not one of the things that invalidate wudoo’.
