Waswasas with regards to wudhu

Q: I just need to know a few things, in order to combat this waswasah in shaa’ Allaah. Now I don’t like looking at my skin after doing wudoo’ because I always seem to be able to find something that will cause doubts about my wudoo’, like feeling loose bits on my nose or eye secretions, or bits on my skin, etc. But how do I combat this? I need guidelines on what I should ignore, or is it OK for me to just to ignore everything that I feel on my skin, is this acceptable even though my wudoo could indeed be invalidated? Thank you, please provide a detailed answer in shaa’ Allaah.


A: Complete the wudhu in accordance to the prescribed Sunnah method (i.e. washing each limb thrice) and thereafter do not worry about anything.

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