Touching the private parts whilst in a state of wudhoo
*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: Does touching the penis with the hand nullify the wudhoo?

Response: The predominant opinion according to me is that touching the penis does not nullify the wudhoo. unless it was done with desire, in which case it nullifies the wudhoo. And if someone else (touched the penis), then it is the same (ruling). Based upon this, the wudhoo. of a woman who cleans a small child’s penis is not nullified.
