Release wind 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:

Dear Burhan Bhai,


Assalamu Alaikum


During Farz Prayers in Jamath or in person, if the air from your body comes out, what should be done immediately. Should we go out of Jamath for performing the wudu or what should be done, since our Wudu breaks after this. Kindly give a clear answer for this.

Release wind 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 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."


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."


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.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs 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,
