Doubts about passing wind while in Prayer. What you should do?

 

 

 

 

If a person who is praying is in doubt as to whether he has passed wind or not, or he
feels some movement in his abdomen, should he stop praying or should he continue?

 

 

If he is certain that he has passed wind, he should stop praying, but if he is uncertain
or doubtful, he should not stop – until he becomes sure of it, either by hearing a
sound or by smelling an odour.

 

If he finds that he has passed wind, he should stop praying, otherwise he should not
pay any attention to it.

 

The evidence for this is the hadeeth reported by Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased
with him): ―The Messenger of Allaah SAWS (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) said: ‗If any one of you is praying and feels some movement in his back passage,
and is in doubt as to whether he has passed wind or not, he should not stop praying
until he hears a sound or detects an odour.‘‖ (Reported by Abu Dawood, 177; see also
Saheeh al-Jaami‘, 750).

 

This is one of the important Islamic prescriptions for curing waswaas (the insinuating
whispers of Shaytaan).
