Wudhu and Vaseline

E-mail Print PDF

Q: If you have vaseline on your body parts and you make wudhu, does the water penetrate your skin? Is your wudhu accepted?

If the vaseline is rubbed into the skin and is not applied in a thick layer on the skin, then wudhu will be valid. If the vaseline is in a thick layer, water will not penetrate that and wudhu will not be valid. One shall have to remove the vaseline and make wudhu.
