Break wudu during prayer.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

My question is that :

If a person breaks his ablution(wudu) during offering the prayer with jamaat will he have to reoffer the prayer or the prayer would be accepted ??

Break wudu during prayer

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 none 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 Talib

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: ‘When any of you breaks wind during the prayer, he should turn away, 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 the state of ‘wudu’ is an absolutely obligatory pre-condition when offering one’s prayers.  If one passes wind during prayers or breaks one’s ‘wudu’, that person must leave the prayers immediately, re-do the ‘wudu’ and then perform the prayer again.


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
