The wudoo’ of one who has something impermeable on his hand etc.

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
If a person performs wudoo’ then finds that part of his hands etc. is covered with something impermeable, such as paint, that prevents water from reaching his skin, can he go ahead and pray, or does he have to remove it for every obligatory prayer, even though that involves hardship for him?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

The Muslim should make sure that water reaches his skin every time he does wudoo’, and he has to remove anything that prevents this. People whose work involves painting and so on can wear something on their hands to prevent them from getting covered with paint.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
