Making Masah on a Cast during Wudhu

Nasihah (Advice): The spinal bone

 

Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: “There is a bone in the human being which the earth would never consume and it is from this that new bodies would be reconstituted (on the Day of Resurrection). They said: “Which bone is that? He said: “It is the spinal bone.” (Musnad Ahmed)

Question and Answer:

 

  1. I have a cast over my arm after breaking a bone in my arm. What do I do in Wudhu? Do I wash the cast in Wudhu or leave it out? 

 

(Question published as received)

 

  1. It is not necessary to wash a cast placed on any of the organs during Wudhu/Ghusal. It will suffice for one to make Masah (passing of a wet hand) over the cast during Wudhu/Ghusal.

 

Masah of the cast will suffice only until such time that one recovers. Upon recovery, Masah will not suffice and washing of the organ during Wudhu/Ghusal will be necessary. (Shaami 1/278)
