Discharge From the Rear Passage

Question

Please advise me if one has discharge from an anal fistula, will wudhu break? The discharge may be mucus or small amount of fluid. At times, one may be in salat, he may not be sure if there was any discharge or not . Even if he checks after salat and there is some discharge, it is hard to tell if that discharge happened before the salat. What should one do in that situation?

Should he just renew the wudhu and repeat Salat if he is only definitely sure wudhu is broken?

Also please advise if same rule applies to mucus discharge from haemorrhoids?

Answer

The rule is that, anything that exits from the two private parts will nullify and break the Wudhu (ablution). As such, mucus that exits the anus due to anal fistula and  haemorrhoids will also nullify
Wudhu.

If one is certain that the discharge of fluid was before the Salaah or whilst in Salaah, then Wudhu will have to be renewed and Salaah will have to be repeated.

However, if one is not certain when the discharge took place, then one should regard the discharge to be after the completion of Salaah, as that is when one became aware of the discharge.
