Preparing in advance for Salaah due to urine problems

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Islam is a religion of ease not of hardship, it is very well mentioned in the Qur’an and hadith about this easiness. I am suffering from urine incontinence. I have realised that I am not a mazoor, but for praying one namaaz I have to make wudhu 3 to 4 time and every time I have to wash my private part, whether I pray on time or later I have to face this hardship. It is really very difficult. So why there is hardship when there is so much easiness in Islam? I am missing my salaah because I can’t take this hardship. I am really upset with myself because I can’t worship my Allah who has given me so much. Please help find a easy way for me.


A: We suggest that you prepare in advance for your Salaah through making istinja approximately an hour before the Salaah. Thereafter place some tissue on your private area to allow all the urine drops to come out. Thereafter you should wash yourself and make wudhu for the Salaah.

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