Some Verdicts on Wiping Over the Splints

    Q) Are there conditions for wiping over splint, for example: in case they are in excess requirements?
    A) Wiping over splints should be in accordance with requirements, so it should be measured according to requirements. The area of wudu or pain is not the only area to be covered with splints or bandages, but also the surrounding area needed for fixing the splints; adhesive tape. (Fatawa about wiping over Khuffain, p26).

    Q) Do these splints and bandages include dressing material, such as gauze, etc?
    A) Yes, Besides wiping over splints are not the same wiping over boots, so it has no time limit and can be practiced as far as it is needed. Splints are against of boots, it can be wiped in both wudu' and ghusl. (Fatawa about wiping over Khuffain, p26).

    Q) How are splints wiped? Should they be covered with wiping or only part of them?
    A) Yes, they should be covered since the substitute has the same status as that of the original. That is, such as the whole part should be washed the whole splints also should be wiped. As for wiping boots, it is just a concession, and the Sunnah has stated that it suffices to wipe over part of the boots. (Fatawa about wiping over Khuffain, p27).
