Women touch break wudu.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
thankyou for answering us all patiently.regarding question for women. does a woman`s wudu become invalid if she is in hijaab, but she shakes hands with her son`s friend who has come home? Also does touching of any non-mehram man in the way of musaffah(shaking hands to say hello) will invalidate her wudu or not or also accidental touching of any non-mehram man. kindly advise in the light of the quran and the sunnah.

Women touch break wudu
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 24 Surah Noor verses 30-31:
30 Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.
31 And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty.
First and foremost, unless and until it is an absolute emergency or an unintentional accident, two non-mehrams of the opposite sex should never touch each other. It simply does not befit the character of a believing man or a believing woman to touch, leave alone shake hands with an adult non-mehram member of the opposite sex!
Your Question: Also does touching of any non-mehram man in the way of musaffah(shaking hands to say hello) will invalidate her wudu or not or also accidental touching of any non-mehram man.
Hadrat Aishah (r.a.) related that the Messenger of Allah (saws) kissed her while he was fasting and said, "Kissing does not nullify the wudu, nor does it break the fast."
The vast majority of the scholars and jurists in Islam are of the opinion that the intentional or unintentional touching of a member of the opposite sex (mehram or non-mehram) does not invalidate ones state of wudu.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
