Wiping over adhesive dressings (Band-Aids) when doing wudoo’


I have something like abscesses on my feet, and the treatment requires that I put an adhesive dressing over them, so that I do not get any water on them when doing wudoo’. What is the ruling in this case?


Praise be to Allah.

Your wudoo’ is valid whether you wipe over the dressing or let water pass over it.
