Does it break my wudu if:

  1. I use a towel and change my clothes?

  2. I become completely naked and then wear the fresh clothes?

No, Changing the clothes with or without towel does not break the wudu. As stated in a similar topic on this link

Many amongest the public believe that unveiling one's own knees or Sitr (private part of body below navel up to knees) or looking at one's own or someone else's knees or Sitr nullifies Wudu; this is a wrong concept. However, to keep the Sitr covered is one of the manners of Wudu; in fact the Sitr should be covered immediately after Istinja (excretion washing). To unveil the Sitr unnecessarily is prohibited and to unveil it before others is Haram. (Bahar-e-Shariat, pp. 309, vol. 1)

Hence, from above statement it is clear that changing clothes doesn't break/nullifies Wudu.


No. Its ok for you to be naked in bathroom (which is very Mustahab/recommended in Islam) or anywhere else and then wear fresh clothes without any worries about your Wudu.

These things can break your Wudu: (according to Wikipedia)

  1. when waste or matter exits the lowermost extremities of the body, the anus and urethra, as either feces, urine, semen, or gas. For wudhu to be invalid through flatulence, one must hear or smell the passing, otherwise, it is not considered void.
  2. When someone falls into a deep sleep in which they have no alert consciousness. anything that causes loss of one's consciousness such as craze, drunkenness, or anesthesia.
  3. anything that needs Ghusl such as Junub and touching a corpse under special circumstances.
