Q: I have a problem that disturbs my ibaadat, personal life and family life. This problem is concerning wudu. In my fingernails, some of the upper nail layer are peeling because I have peeling my nail bed. Must water enter under these peels. I have harmed my nail a lot. Must water reach only the surface of the nail or under (and not the cracks) because my nail (nailbed) is cracked because I harmed it.
A: To the extent that you can pass the water over you should pass it over.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
