Q: My issue is that I have urine drops problem. It is not specific to the time when I use the toilet, rather it is continuous. Sometimes a drop or two leaks after a few minutes and sometimes half an hour may also pass without any drops. I mean there is no regular pattern according to which one may follow the ruling for maintaining wuzu/taharah. Cannot decide on wether I should consider myself as mazoor or not. What method should I apply to safeguard my ibadaat?
And what is the boundary regarding ascertaining by one’s ownself about leakage of drops? I ask this becuase even when drops leak within a few minutes, I do not specifically know that at this instant wuzu has broken. Shall I consider this lack of knowledge of the wuzu breaking event continuity of wuzu and keep doing ibadat. If yes, for what duration shall I continue the said consideration i.e. can I go on to pray the witr and taraweeh with wuzu for faraiz?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
