Making wudhu while wearing hair clips and earings

Q: I use 2 clips to secure my hair-it is behind my ears. They are straight hairpins. Do I need to remove them before I make wudhu, or can I make wudhu with them on and is wudhu valid? Can you comment about earrings on during wudhu?



  1. No.
  2. It is not necessary to remove the earrings at the time of wudhu.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
