Nasihah (Advice): Blood in the path of Allah

 

Sayyiduna Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu Anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said:“Every wound which a Muslim receives in Allah’s cause will appear on the Day of Resurrection as it was at the time of infliction; blood will be flowing from the wound: its colour will be that of blood and its smell will be like musk.” (Bukhari)

Question and Answer:

 

  1. Does taking a blood test break Wudhu and Ghusal?

 

  1. In taking a blood test, if the blood extracted is to the extent that if the needle etc. was not there, the blood would have flowed out of the area of extraction, then in such a case, a person’s Wudhu will be null and void. However, Ghusal will not be necessary. (Fatawaa Raheemiyyah 4/23)
