Q: Five minutes after salaah, when I go to the toilet, some times I observe that a drop of urine is evident on the tissue between the underwear. Now I want to ask that after all the precautions you mention, if I notice such a thing, would my namaaz be valid?
A: If after the drop of urine had come out you made wudhu and performed Salaah, the Salaah will be valid. However, if after making wudhu or during Salaah the drop of urine had come out, then through the drop of urine coming out the wudhu will break and the Salaah performed in that state will not be valid. After passing urine, do not make wudhu immediately. Instead wait for a little while (e.g. 15-20 minutes). Place tissue paper on that area so that the remainder urine drops will be absorbed in the tissue paper. Once all the urine drops have come out you should make wudhu and perform your Salaah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
