Drops of Urine Due to an Overstretched Bladder

Answered by: Maulana Muhammad Asadullah Anwar Adam


I am a female who suffers from OCD and I have also been diagnosed with an overstretched bladder. This causes me to leak urine drops and therefore I spend up to half an hour in the toilet – which I find mentally exhausting.

After I come out of the toilet I sometimes feel that more urine drops have come out. I am not sure how many drops have come out. Therefore, will I need to return to the toilet to clean myself? Or can I assume that very little has come out and just make wudhu and pray? I fear that if I go back to the toilet to wash I will spend another half an hour – which will be exhausting.

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


The one who has become excused (ma’zur) due to the continuous discharge of urine will be required to repeat the wudhu with the ending of the salah time for the next salah.

If however, a person performs wudhu after the discharge of urine comes to a halt and the person remains in a state that no further droplets are being discharged, the wudhu will not become invalid with the salah time coming to an end. He or she may use that wudhu to perform the next salah.

If the droplets continue to discharge after performing the wudhu, it will have to be repeated with the ending of the salah time as was mentioned above. [1]
