Passing wind and urine drops

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 205   Narrated by Ali ibn Talq

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: ‘When any of you breaks wind during the prayer, he should turn away and perform ablution and repeat the prayer.’


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.137         Narrated by Abu Huraira

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The prayer of a person who does Hadath is not accepted till he performs (repeats) the ablution." A person from Hadaramout asked Abu Huraira, "What is 'Hadath'?"  Abu Huraira replied, " 'Hadath' means the passing of wind from the anus."


To be in a valid state of ‘wudu’ is an obligatory condition of prayer; thus if one breaks his wudu at any time during the prayer, it is obligatory upon him to leave the congregation immediately, redo his wudu and start his prayer again.  Regardless of whether the person is praying in the first or last row, he must leave the congregation immediately to re-do his wudu, and repeat the prayer again.


Beloved brother, the principle in Islam is that one must act only on convictions,  not on doubts!   Thus, only if you are absolutely convinced that you have released wind after performing wudu for prayer, either by hearing its sound or through its foul smell,  only then will you have to repeat the wudu again.


But if you have a doubt that wind might have been released,  or your stomach is making sounds,  or any other doubts in that regard whatsoever;  you should not worry about it at all,  as doubts do not invalidate your wudu for prayer.   Only if you are absolutely convinced that you have released wind,  you will have to redo the wudu.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.139         Narrated by Abbas bin Tamim

My uncle asked Allah's Messenger (saws) about a person who imagined to have passed wind during the prayer.  Allah' s Messenger (saws) replied: "He should not leave his prayers unless he hears sound or smells something."


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 310         Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said:  “No ablution is necessary except in the case of sound (of wind),  or the foul smell (of wind).”


Your Question: also while offering namaz i feel that drop of urine is coming.

Reported Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) , “I used to have a great deal of prostatic fluid flowing, so I asked a man to ask the Prophet (saws)  about it (as I was shy to ask him, due to my relationship with him through his daughter).   He asked him and the Prophet (saws), said, "Make ablution and wash your penis." (Related by al-Bukhari and others.)


Al-Athram narrated, "I was bothered by a great deal of madhi, so I went to the Prophet (saws), and informed him of this.   He said  'It is sufficient for you to take a handful of water and sprinkle it over (the madhi)."'


Brother,  the organ of the men,  whereby the urine is discharged has a long tube,  therefore it is possible that even after one has washed his private area clean after relieving himself;   a few drops may remain in the tube which may drop after one gets up or moves.    If one is convinced that some urine drops have fallen after he has cleansed himself,   he should wash his private parts and the area of the clothes the urine drops might have touched again,  do the wudu and perform the prayers.   There is absolutely no need to do the full ghusl.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
