Wudhu breaking due to a gas problem

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Gas problem.

The problem is: When I go to make wudu I feel like gas is going to come out and I am unable to ignore that feeling and I get uncomfortable. If I make a fresh wudu for each prayer and leave that gas to come or not no problem then I can attain comfort. To do this I need to ignore that certain gas is coming out while making wudu. If I do this and sometimes gas comes or I feel like gas is coming which might be certain then I should ignore both cases or else if I start to make sure nothing has come out then I will again be in state of uncomfortableness. Regarding doubts Ii know that they should be ignored but i get doubts which can’t be just ignored because of their “closeness to certainity” or “certainity itslef”. So i thought of doing this:

Make wudu and pray and ignore the gas even if I am certain whether it be during wudu or prayer or after prayer etc. This gave me a relief. Can I continue this?


A: If you are not a mazoor then whenever gas comes out your wudu will break. You should repeat your wudhu and then perform your salaah.

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