Q: I am having a problem of passing wind. For one salah I make 4-5 times wudu because of this problem.
1. My question is that am I considered a mazoor?
2. If a person had said his salah when he is continuously passing wind and after some time of completion of his salah if he got rid of gaseous problem and salah time was there should that person repeat salah?
1. A ma`zoor is that person who experiences a breaker of wudhu, like passing of gas or urine incontinence etc. 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. Once this is established, one will remain a ma`zoor for as long as that particular breaker of wudhu occurs at least once in the rest of the salaah times that follow. If you qualify as a ma`zoor then you will only have to make wudhu at the beginning of each namaaz time irrespective of how many times wind is passed. If you do not qualify as a ma`zoor then you will have to make wudhu whenever your wudhu breaks.
2. If he was a ma`zoor because of a wind problem then his salaah is valid.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
