A man directly touching his woman

Q: A person can not avoid giving and taking things from his wife all day long; if the person touches the hand of his wife after Wudu’ (ablution), is his Wudu’ nullified?

A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. The scholars disputed the case of a man who touches his woman directly, whether his Wudu’ is nullified or not. The preponderant opinion is that it does not nullify Wudu’ whether he touches her lustfully or not, for the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) used to kiss some of his wives without performing Wudu’ after that. It is also a matter of common action that would impose difficulty if Wudu’ was necessitated in this case; besides if it did nullify Wudu’, the Prophet (peace be upon him) would have explained.As for Allah’s Saying in Surahs Al-Nisa’ and Al-Ma’idah: ...or you have been in contact with women (by sexual relations) the meaning refers to Jima‘ (conjugal intercourse), according to the more correct of the two opinions held by the scholars.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
