Finding metal dust on one’s body

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: There is tiny grain of a blinking metal dust of about a millimeter on ones skin. Now one just discovered this at 14.00 o’clock after he woke up from sleep and had breakfast. I have no idea when it came on my skin. Do I need to repeat any of my salaah? What is the procedure in such circumstances? Do I now need to wash my arm like in wudhu, and if the grain goes away, then assume all my wudhus until now were correct? Or what is the procedure?


A: No.

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