Removing the Ointment from Wounds or Cracks

This entry is part 13 of 15 in the series Sunnats and Aadaab of Wudhu

Q: Is it necessary to remove the ointment from the wounds or cracks on the feet or hands at the time of wudhu?

A: If passing water over the wounds or cracks will be harmful (or delay the process of healing), it will not be necessary to remove the ointment. Making masah of that limb will suffice (i.e. merely passing wet hands over the wound or crack).
