Praying with Urinary Incontinence: Acceptable or Repeatable?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am a mazoor as I suffer from urinary incontinence. I had a ghusl an hour befor jumuah. When I was at jumuah just before jamaat salaah commenced I felt a drop of urine coming out though I wasn’t sure. The drop of urine can’t soil my clothing as I wear a incontinence pad. Even if I remove the pad and check I won’t be able to confirm if a drop came out as the pad is absorbent. I made namaaz like this. Was the namaaz excepted or do I have to repeat it.


A: Until you do not have sufficient evidence, count yourself to be in the state of wudhu.

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