Doubts regarding breaking wind

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Everytime I offer salah and in standing and bowing position I feel wind coming out and I repeat my wudu. At other times I’m not sure whether wind came out. I’m getting really nervous and depressed. Is this waswasa from shaytan, please clarify.


A: You will only consider your wudhu to be broken when you are certain that wind has come out either by hearing it or smelling the odour.

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