Does kissing the wife invalidate Wudhu?

If I & my wife are in Wudhu, and if we kiss each other does the Wudhu is broken, Do we have to make Wudhu again?


According to the Hanafi Madh-hab, The husband and wife kissing each other does not invalidate the Wudhu unless impure substances were emitted from the private parts due to arousal. If Mazi (pre coital fluid) was emitted, the Wudhu will become invalid. If Mani (semen) was ejaculated, Ghusl will become Fardh. The Wudhu of the female will become invalid in this situation if she secretes Qazy (the fluids secreted due to arousal). (al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah)


المذي ينقض الوضوء وكذا الودي والمني إذا خرج من غير شهوة بأن حمل شيئا فسبقه المني أو سقط من مكان مرتفع يوجب الوضوء . كذا في المحيط . ومني الرجل خاثر أبيض رائحته كرائحة الطلع فيه لزوجة ينكسر الذكر عند خروجه ، ومني المرأة رقيق أصفر والمذي رقيق يضرب إلى البياض يبدو خروجه عند الملاعبة مع أهله بالشهوة ويقابله من المرأة القذي
