Will one’s wudhu terminate by exposing the body?


When someone take shower naked, will he/she needs to do wudu after completing shower? While in wudu, if I change my pant by becoming naked, will I have to do wudu again?


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

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

If someone takes ghusl, one will not have to redo his/her wudhu after the shower. The ghusl will suffice for the wudhu.

Exposing one’s body does not invalidate the wudhu. Therefore, if one removes his/her clothes whilst in the state of wudhu, the wudhu will not terminate. [1]

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
