Can one stop wind to finish 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:

Assalamu Alaikkum WRWB.

Suppose my stomach sounds to release the wind. Can I wantedly stop the releasing of wind when I am in prayer ? Is my prayer an acceptable one ? Please clear my doubt.


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Can one stop wind to finish 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.


The sound of the stomach alone does not break the wudu or the prayer of a person, unless and until he actually releases the wind.


If one cannot control, or is uncomfortable while holding his wind being released, and as a result cannot concentrate on his prayers; he must leave his prayers, release his wind, do wudu again, and then perform the prayers again.


But if one can easily control his wind being released, and is in no discomfort whatsoever, and is able to concentrate on his prayers; there is no harm if he holds his wind until he finishes his prayers.


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,
