Wudhu breaking with a drop of urine


  1. Someone told me that if only a drop of urine comes out you still have your wudu because a drop is less than a penny (coin), is this true?
  2. All impurity which is less than 3 to 5 centimetres in diameter is excused. I am sure two drops of urine on your clothes will not make a circle which is more than 3 centimetres, is that true?


A: This is incorrect. The wudhu will immediately break.

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