wa `alaykum as-salam wa ra7mat ALLAH wabarakatuh

Bismillahir-Ra7manir-Ra7eem


sister, here's the answer to a similar question of yours:

1 All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

If the ink is just a colour that does not prevent water from reaching the skin –and this is what we predominantly think –then the ablution is valid and it is not legislated to repeat the prayer again. However, if the ink is a solid matter that can be removed, then it prevents the water from reaching the skin; in which case, the ablution is not valid and you are obliged to repeat the prayer again in the two cases you mentioned in the question. However, what should be taken into account is the prevention of water from reaching the skin; in case it (the ink) does not prevent the water from reaching the skin, the ablution is valid, and if it prevents the water from reaching the skin, then the ablution is not valid and the prayer with such ablution is void.

2.  Praise be to ALLAH.

The guideline concerning that is that whatever prevents water from reaching the skin means that wudoo’ is not valid, and whatever does not prevent water from reaching the skin means that wudoo’ is valid.

Based on this, wudoo’ is valid if there is ink on any part of the body that is washed in wudoo’, because it does not prevent water reaching the skin.

And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad SAW) concerning Me, then, I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright. Qur'an (2:186)
