Urine drops problem

Q: I have always suffered from the disease of urinary dribbling, but recently it has become aggravated and I have fallen into the category of ma’adhur (one with a chronic excuse). My question is a two-part question related to my current situation:

1) A few weeks ago I was praying Isha (and some other prayers along with it). Unfortunately I was also in a state of sexual excitement at the time (no erection, but just a feeling of excitement). During my prayer I felt some najasat exiting my penis several times, but since I was already ma’adhur, I continued praying. My concern is that the najasat was prostatic fluid, and the prayers became invalid.

2) On another occasion I was standing in prayer and I got this sudden urge to urinate (which was not there at the time I started Salah), and I was trying to suppress the urge and the pressure, but some urine did exit at the time. However, within less than a minute the urge just disappeared, and I continued praying (and prayed several other prayers too) with that wudhu. Does this situation also fall within the realm of my normal udhur or should I have stopped my prayer and repeated my wudhu?


A: If you are a ma’zoor, then the coming out of urine drops will not invalidate your wudhu. However if any other factor that breaks the wudhu is found besides the coming out of urine drops (e.g. mazi, etc), then your wudhu will break. For further details regarding a ma’zoor refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/1571

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
