Feeling gas in one’s stomach

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum 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:
If a person is doing wudoo’ and hears his stomach rumble, but does not pass wind from his back passage, what is the ruling? Does he still have wudoo’ or does this break his wudoo’?

Praise be to Allaah.

If a person has wudoo’ and hears the sound of wind or gas inside his stomach, this does not break his wudoo’ if he does not pass anything, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If any one of you notices something in his stomach and is not sure whether anything came out of him, he should not leave the mosque unless he hears a sound or smells a smell.”

(Reported by Muslim, 1/190)
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.
