Wife touching husband in prayer
If my wife touches me by accident while I am reading Salah either through
a) skin to skin contact b) through clothing, ie leg with clothing brushed my arm which also had clothing.
Will it break my Salah if there is basically contact with a female during Salah in the above 2 situations? Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
The prayer will be valid in both of the above-mentioned scenarios because no action took place that would nullify the prayer. Raddul Muhtar: v. 2, p. 390 (Maktaba Imdadia); Fatawa Hindiya: v. 1, p. 115 (DKI); Hashiya At-Tahtawi: p. 343 (Qadeemi Kutub Khana); Munyatul Musalli wa Ghunyatul Mubtadi: p. 155 (Maktaba Tayyiba); Fatawa Darul Uloom Zakariya: v. 2, p. 416-418 (Zamzam)
Only Allah knows best
