Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

i read that your wadu is only broke if you laugh in salat, go to sleep, or use the bathroom. Is this true? so if i read Asr and dont do any of those i can read maghrib without waduing again?

Wudu only breaks when we find what breaks it occurs which is found in the Qur'an and Sunnah.

Allah says, [O you who have believed, do not approach prayer while you are intoxicated until you know what you are saying or in a state of janabah, except those passing through [a place of prayer], until you have washed [your whole body]. And if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and find no water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and your hands [with it]. Indeed, Allah is ever Pardoning and Forgiving] [4 v43] This is what breaks your wudu and that is, if one drinks Alcohol and similar intoxication, if one has a wet private bit whether be major sperm or the white liquid that comes out, or one goes to the toilet to relief themselves, or you have a sexual relation, or you lose your saneness or become unconscious, or you sleep long period, or you break a wind, and anything that comes out of your private parts.

As for wudu breaking when one laughs is only during Salah because there is a hadith which says, the Prophet [saw] saw a man praying and the man laughed while he was praying and then the prophet [saw] told him to do his wudu and to pray again as he broke his Salah and wudu which the man did, and this hadith can be found in the Sahihayn.

As for touching Alcohol and pork and the like of it there s no evidence to support it and therefore, does not break your wudu.

As for touching woman the majority of scholars have agreed it does not break your wudu and if you shake hands or you touch a none muhram it does not break your wudu but you have committed a major sin which one need to repent from. Allah knows best

also if you pass gas or a large quanity of blood gushes from a wound because bllod is nijis also touching alchohol or pork many people also redo wudu if they do any sins because the prophet said wudu is to physically clean yourself and to clense yourself from any sins
