Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
I did wudoo’ for prayer, and during the prayer I remembered that I had not rinsed my nose. What is the ruling concerning my wudoo’ and my prayer in this case?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
Rinsing the nose in wudoo’ is obligatory, because it is proven that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did this and said: “Whoever does wudoo’, let him rinse his nose.” Whoever does not rinse his nose, his wudoo’ is not valid. So you must repeat both your wudoo’ and your prayer.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
