Validity of ablution if a speck of paint remains on hands

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Abdurrahman ibn Yusuf Mangera

I made wudu with a speck of paint on my hands, I didn’t realise until later. Was my wudu valid?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalamu alaykum

As such it should be repeated once the paint spot is removed.


Abdurrahman Ibn Yusuf
