Assalam o Alaikum:
1.I would like to ask if the water that comes out from the eyes due to laughing,coughing,sneezing,Putting water with force in the nose or ear,yawning etc. breaks wudhu? Moreover,is it considered impure and do i have to wash my eye before praying?
2. If a person has more than the excused amount of impurity on his body and forgets to wash it off before prayer and remembers after he has finished the prayer,is his prayer valid or does he have to repeat the prayer?


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

  1. Wudhu will not break in such circumstances. Wudhu will only break of water comes out due to a sickness.
  2. The prayer will have to be repeated.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
