Bandage on the foot

Fatwaa ID: 773

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

If a person has a cast/bandage on the foot unto the knee …when making whudu how much of thr bandage do they need to make masah of ?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

If one has a cast or bandage on a wudhu limb due to a valid reason and removing it is difficult or harmful, then he will be excused to wipe over that portion instead of washing it. When wiping, the portion of the bandage or cast that is on the wudhu limb should be wiped.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
