Yellowish Discharge and Wudhu

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: I have read the fatwa about discharge. What if the discharge is yellow, but not thick and does not have an odor at all? Is my salah accepted? Doesn’t then go under the ruling that it does not break the wudu?

I have read that some sanitary towels can be the reason why the normal discharge can turn yellow, because it contains something that changes the color of the discharge when it is moist in the vaginal area.

A: A discharge that appears yellowish but has not odor at all, will be considered the normal secretion from the front organ. This will not break wudhu. It is true that when the discharge dries up on the underwear or pads it turns yellow. So that will not reflect the true colour and has to be ignored.

So there is no need to make wudhu in this case. Your salaah will be accepted.
