Bleeding during the prayer

Q72 :What can one do if he bleeds through the nose during prayer? Should he continue or not?


A72 : Some scholars, particularly of the Hanafi school of thought, consider bleeding as one of the things that invalidate ablutions. Their verdict on what should the person do if he bleeds in prayer is very detailed, and they relate some of these details to the amount of blood that is discharged. However, there does not seem to be any evidence to support this view. The evidence is more on the side of the view that bleeding does not invalidate ablutions. When Umar was stabbed in prayer, he resumed praying although he had lost much of his blood. No one of the Prophet's companions objected to what he did.
