Can we pray while wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) that covers the entire body? How can a person do Wuzu properly while in PPE, if he breaks his Wuzu and cannot open the suit, especially doctors who are busy working?


Nothing wrong praying whilst wearing PPE even if it covers the face and all of the body, so long as the worshipper is able to place his nose and forehead on the ground when prostrating. Also nothing wrong for a person doing Wuzu whilst wearing PPE, if he is able to wash the parts that must be washed and to wipe the head, even if that is by putting his wet hand under the PPE as long as there is a flow of water with few drops falling.
