Nosebleed and Wudu

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Shaykh Abdul-Rahim Reasat

Question: Assalamu alaykum

If a nosebleed occurs when blowing water in your nose, should you stop
blowing water into your nose? Also your nose wont be able to recover
because of constantly blowing water in your nose. Should you skip
blowing water?

Answer: Wa ‘alaykum as-salam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh

I pray you are well.

Apologies, but I was unable to ascertain the exact scenario from your question. If you get a nosebleed when sniffing water into your nose, doing this gently still makes it bleed, you can skip this part of the wudu.

The same applies when blowing the water out of your nose. If you can blow gentle without making it bleed, do so. Otherwise, skip it.

You should intend that you would have followed this sunna if you did not have this problem preventing you. A good dhikr at this point would be:

سَمِعْنَا وَأَطَعْنَا غُفْرَانَكَ رَبَّنَا وَإِلَيْكَ الْمَصِيرُ

“We hear and obey, Our Dear Lord. [We seek] your forgiveness, and to you alone is the ultimate return.” (2:285).

I hope that helps. May Allah grant you the best of both worlds.
