Gums bleeding after using miswaak in wudhu

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: When performing wudu, I use miswaak. Sometimes after miswaak, the gums bleed so when I rinse my mouth, reddish color can be seen. Should I continue with wudu? Or am I supposed to re-start?


A: Restart the wudhu.

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