Making Masah on a cast during Wudhu/Ghusal

Q. I have a cast over my arm after breaking a bone in my arm. What do I do in Wudhu? Do I wash the cast in Wudhu or leave it out?

A. It is not necessary to wash a cast placed on any of the organs of Wudhu/Ghusal during Wudhu/Ghusal. It will suffice for one to make Masah (passing of a wet hand) over the cast during Wudhu/Ghusal.

Masah of the cast will suffice only until such time that one recovers. Upon recovery, Masah will not suffice and the washing of the organ during Wudhu/Ghusal will be necessary. (Shaami 1/278)
