Q: I stuck a tissue in my nose and found a small amount of blood on it. Is my wudhu broken? Also, If my finger is impure and I put it in my nose whilst the inside of my nose was wet or moist does the inside of my nose become impure? How do I purify the inside of my nose if it does become impure? Also, what is the difference between dry blood coming out of the nose and wet blood? What if there is blood inside the nose, is wudhu broken only when it comes out of the nose or is it broken even if it is still inside the nose? Because usually if you have a cut or wound, wudhu is broken when blood flows out of the wound but it’s hard to tell in the nose. Is blood coming out of the nose the same as blood coming out of the wound?


A: If the blood in the nose is in liquid form and it comes out, the wudhu will break. If it is not in liquid form, the wudhu will not break.

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