Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Assalam u Alaikum,
I suffer from severe gum disease, the gums bleed often particularly when I peform wudu, it takes a long time for it to stop. They also bleed just randomly sometimes even when im praying.

I am aware that any flowing of blood nullifies wudu, but im my situation would i be considered as “mazur” if not then, could you specify what a mazur is. Also if you could suggest any treatment for my gum disease I would appreciate it, I do brush my teeth twice a day also use mouth cleaners such as listerine.

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits. May Allah grant you health (shifa’) and well-being (`afiya), and may He grant you all good in this life and the next.

See the Related QA for answers on chronic annulment of wudu. As for medical advice, please consult qualified medical practitioners.

And Allah alone gives success.
