Q: I have a problem. I am punctual with my jamaat and takbeer ula and I am in the first saff 4/5 or 3/5(minimum). I have seen a hakim and he has confirmed the sickness and prescribed a remedy which includes a strict diet and a drink mix which due to living circumstances I have been unable to commence the diet. After passing stool I wash. After washing a few hours later dirt emerges so when I go back I find residue which has come out at a later stage. I also suffer from urine drops. If I am not suffering from the stool problem I go toilet an hour before azaan and at azaan time put a clean tissue make whudu and read in a full state of purity. To give an example yesterday I went to toilet at 11:45, zohar jamaat was at 1:15, so if i went to wash my back passage i would suffer from urine drops, then at 4 i went to the toilet and again passed stool so I had to read my zohar before time expired, hence i was a madhoor. At asr I washed my back put a tissue for the drops and read asr with jamaat at maghrib and esha, I did the same. Now for fajr I could clean myself and neither have urine drops or residue, now the question arises when i go to toilet again what should i do? That is for zohar. Because the stool problem does not occur in every period. But when it does I have to miss jamaat and am I a madhoor for drops or the stool? The stool doesn’t occur in every period but the drops do. Another incident, I have relations with my wife, I wake up at 4:30 to make ghusl, jamaat at 5. If I wait till 5:30 the drops may stop. My main concern is regarding my jamaat and can I be madhoor for drops because in certain periods I can attain purity, so what takes preference the jamaat or being completely clean.
A: If there was no drops experienced in the entire duration of Fajr you will no longer be a mazoor.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
