Mouth bleeding when gargling in wudhu

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I just got 4 of my wisdom teeth removed and my gums are in pain and constantly bleeding. If I rinse my mouth a bunch of blood comes out. So how do I make wudhu, and how do I pray?


A: Try gargling your mouth very gently. If it still bleeds then leave out gargling in wudhu.

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