Urine drops come out due to sneezing. Do i have to do Ghusl?


While Iam at office it happens some time that some drop of urine comes out during sneezing is this makes Gusul obligatory or it is oky to change the cloths later in home as it is not immedietly possible to chane cloths or perform Gusul.

Pleas answer this question as due to this I have missed my Sallaths.


In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Urine drops coming out does not invalidate ghusal. Urine is impure and it invalidates wuzu. If urine soils your undergarment, then your clothing will become impure. For example, Salah with impure clothing will be invalid. You could avoid your undergarments from becoming impure by placing a tissue that will absorb the urine. At the time of salah, you should remove the soiled tissue and make wuzu and perform salah. If your undergarment gets soiled with urine, you should wash the soiled portion three times and squeeze it out each time and perform salah. You should not miss any salah or let any salah become qaza.

And Allah knows best
