Wudhu breaking through busting a pimple

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Taleemul haq states that if any liquids flow out of the body, Wudhu is broken. I did not know about this and I am not sure if I had ever popped a pimple and read my salaah after, but I might have done that. When I pop a pimple pus doesn’t flow out but settles on the surface, do I have to make qadah salah?



1. If you do not remember whether it had happened in the past, then you do not need to repeat any Salaah.

2. If the pus comes out of the skin through busting the pimple, the wudhu will break.

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