If one takes wudhu and on the mustache there will stay drops of water and during salaah few drops do enter the mouth, does the salaah brake?



Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


If he swallows the water intentionally or mistakenly, the Salāh will be nullified.
