Feeling Bubbles in the Back Passage

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Alimah Sumeyye Sofu


Assalamu Alaikum. I want to ask a question which I haven’t gotten the right answer to yet. I usually feel bubbles in my back passage. It does not feel like fart and this keeps reoccurring. There are times where I have to make wudhu like 4-5 times. Because every time I make it, I feel those bubbles and I feel that my wudu is broken so I have to redo it. I’ve been experiencing this problem for almost a year now. It gets quite frustrating and takes my concentration off salah. Sometimes I feel that it might be Shaytan blowing inside me but I don’t know. I’m really confused as to what those bubbles are. I feel it even in salah. When I bow down for sajdah, I feel those bubbles and then I remake my wudu. Please help me with this.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


If one is certain that he has passed wind through the anus, then it will be necessary to repeat the wudhu.[1] However, if one has a doubt of whether he has passed wind or not, then his wudhu will still be considered intact.[2]

In order to invalidate wudhu, a person must be absolutely certain that something has exited. This can be told by hearing or smelling something, or when there has undoubtedly been a passage of wind.

Based on the principle, ”Doubts will not be taken into consideration,”[3] your prayer will be permissible.
