Does mucus invalidate prayer?
Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a woman to pray when mucus is coming out of her all day long? She tries to have a bath so that she will always be clean.
(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.)

Yes, that is permissible, rather it is obligatory for her to offer the prayers on time, and that is not an impediment to her praying. You should understand that mucus and spittle do not invalidate wudoo’, and they are taahir (pure). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) allowed a worshipper to spit into his garment or under his foot whilst praying; this was narrated by al-Bukhaari, 500.
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.
