    Answer By Ustadh Haroon Hanif

    Your wudu is valid and does not need repeating. Washing the mouth is amongst the sunnas of wudu but the wudu is complete without it. However, if this happened when performing the ritual bath, your ritual bath is incomplete and you would still be in an impure state until the mouth has been washed. All that would need to done in that case is for you to return and wash your mouth.
