Not renewing the wudhu after ghusal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


  1. Can I read namaaz with the same wudu which I made before ghusul?
  2. I have wudu and I changed clothes infront of my wife, do I still have wudu?



  1. Through ghusal (i.e. washing one’s entire body) wudhu automatically takes place.
  2. It is against hayaa that one removes one’s clothes and changes in front of one’s wife. However the wudhu will not break.

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

فصل في نواقض الوضوء المعاني الناقضة للوضوء كل ما يخرج من السبيلين والدم والقيح إذا خرجا من البدن فتجاوزا إلى موضع يلحقه حكم التطهير والقي ملء الفم وهذا إذا قاء مرة أو طعاما أو ماء فإن قاء بلغما فغير ناقض عند أبي حنيفة ومحمد رحمهما الله وقال أبو يوسف رحمه الله ناقض إذا كان ملء الفم ولو نزل من الرأس إلى ما لأن من الأنف نقض بالإتفاق والنوم مضطجعا أو متطئا أو مستندا إلى شيء لو أزيل عنه لسقط … إلخ (هداية 1/22)
