Making wudhu from a tub that one washed dried blood in

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had a bleeding spot on my nose. Once the bleeding stopped, I wiped it with a tissue and some dried blood came off. There didn’t seem to be any more dried blood left on my nose, but I didn’t check too carefully. Then I washed it in the tub by pouring water over my nose for a while, but some of that water entered into my nose when I inhaled. So then I went on to clean out my nose. I rinsed my nose once and then was pouring water over my nose again, when some of the water from the bottom of the tub splashed back onto my face. I did not look at the bottom of the tub to see any impurity. I ignored the splashes and made wudu. Did my wudu count? Do I have to pray again? Did I get impurity all over the bathroom when I made wudu?


A: It is counted.

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