Making Sure (Hadith No. 139)


Having problems with wudu-maintenance? Or is it just your imagination?

Volume 1, Book 4, Number 139:

Narrated ‘Abbas bin Tamim:

My uncle asked Allah’s Apostle about a person who imagined to have passed wind during the prayer. Allah’ Apostle replied: “He should not leave his prayers unless he hears sound or smells something.”

Lesson: do not renew your wudu unless you’re sure it’s broken. And the way to make sure is: sound/smell.

  1. Jazakallah for this hadith. i hav been wondering recently but somehow never looked it up!

  2. what to do in case of repeated wudu breaking because of this problem during prayers!

    • If it’s a medical problem, then your wudu is not broken. For each prayer, perform fresh wudu and continue that prayer till you’re done (even if wudu breaks during that).
      Simply, one wudu: one prayer.
      Hope your question is answered. :)
