A man touching his penis while drying himself after Ghusl

Q: What is the ruling if a person touches his penis while drying himself after taking a bath?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. (Part No. 5; Page No. 264)  The Wudu’ (ablution) is invalidated, if the person touches his penis with no barrier, because of the general meaning of the Hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him): “Whoever touches his penis, should perform Wudu”. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
