Does Seeing Wife's `Awrah Invalidate Your Wudu?

Question

Does Wudu get invalid if one person sees the`Awrah of his wife?

Summary of answer

Wudu is not invalidated by seeing the `Awrah of your wife. A man’s seeing his own `Awrah or that of someone else is not one of the things that invalidate Wudu.

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

Wudu is not invalidated by seeing the `Awrah of your wife . We have already listed, in the answer to question no. 14321 , the things that invalidate Wudu. A man’s seeing his own `Awrah or that of someone else is not one of them. 

The Standing Committee was asked (5/270): is Wudu invalidated simply by looking at naked men and women, and is Wudu invalidated if a man looks at his own ‘Awrah? 

They replied: 

”Wudu is not invalidated simply by looking at naked men and women , or by looking at one’s own `Awrah, because there is no evidence to that effect.” 

They were also asked (5/283): Can a Muslim touch the Mus-haf or pray if he has looked at his own `Awrah when he was doing Wudu? 

They replied: “Yes, looking at the `Awrah is not one of the things that invalidate Wudu .”

And Allah knows best.
