Touching the private parts of an infant

Q: If I touch my baby's private parts while changing his clothes, does this nullify my Wudu' (ablution)?


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. Touching the private parts directly without barrier nullifies Wudu’, regardless of the age of the person touched, for it is authentically narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Whoever touches his genitals, should perform Wudu’.” Therefore, touching the genitals of another come under the same ruling as touching one’s own genitals.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
