Wudu Lost By Lying Down? No…

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Someone seems to claim that in the hanafi maddhab, wudu is invalidated by simply lying down. Is this true?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Wudu is broken if one sleeps with one’s rear not firmly on the ground.

If dosing deeply, such that you can’t understand most of the speech around you, wudu  is broken.

Light dosing, which is if you can understand most speech around you, does not break wudu. [allfrom Durr and Radd]
