Blood which does not flow out of the wound on it’s own

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If someone has a tiny wound on his face such that only a needle point of blood comes out and does not go away from the wound. But if water gets splashed on it during wudhu, the tiny blood that comes out and settles on the wound normally, goes now away with the flow of the water. Because when the tiny wound spot gets wet, the tiny blood that comes out mingles with the water. But normally the blood would stay on the wound spot if the skin was dry. Does this break wudhu?


A: The wudhu will not break.

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