Removing Contact Lenses during Wudhu?

read time: 1 minute
Question and Answer:

Q. I sometimes wear clear contact lenses instead of glasses. I don’t remove them when I make Wudhu. I want to know if Wudhu if my Wudhu is valid.

(Question published as received)

A. Wudhu with contact lenses is valid. Wetting the eye itself is not a requirement for the validity of the Wudhu. One should ensure that the face is washed properly and water reaches the skin at the corners of the eye.
