Does accidentally exposing the sattar during prayer break wudhu?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Assalamu Alaikum
If in the state of wudhu, your sattar (navel to knee) is seen by someone else by mistake, is your wudhu broken? e.g during namaaz someone infront of you goes for rukhu, and his dress sense is so that his lower back side is exposed and seen by mistake by the person behind him, does his wudhu break?

The exposure and viewing of the satar, be it one’s own or another’s does not break wudhu regardless of whether it occurred accidentally or purposely. In the above-mentioned situation, the observer’s wudhu will remain intact as well as the wudhu of the person being observed. However, the salah of the latter will become invalid as opposed to the former (Maraqil Falah, p. 337, 342)
