Ma’zoor

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I sometimes offer prayer for a time without any problem. But sometimes my wudhu breaks and on performing again, it breaks. Then I perform the four faraiz of wudhu and offer salah. Sometimes it’s difficult to maintain wudhu even for five minutes and offer salah. What should I do?

Bismillaah

A: If you qualify as a ma`zoor then you will only have to make wudhu at the beginning of the namaaz time irrespective of how many times that particular breaker of wudhu occurs. A ma`zoor is that person who experiences a breaker of wudhu, like passing of gas or urine incontinence so frequently that from the beginning of the namaaz time until the end of the namaaz time he / she is unable to perform wudhu and read namaaz without that particular breaker of wudhu occurring. If you do not qualify as a ma`zoor then you will have to make wudhu whenever your wudhu breaks.

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