Who is a ma’zoor?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Most of the time after urinating a drop of urine comes out.  I was told if I am a ma’zoor my wudu wouldn’t break if urine comes out and I can pray more than 1 salah with 1 wudu e.g pray zuhr, asr with 1 wudu so is it correct I can pray more than 1 salah with 1 wudu?


A: In Shariah, a person will qualify as a ma’zoor if the entire namaaz time passes in such a condition that he is unable to perform the wudhu and the salaah without the uzr (i.e. the factor breaking the wudhu e.g. the coming out of urine) being found. Hence if you are able to make wudhu and perform the Salaah during the time without urine coming out, you will not qualify as a ma’zoor. After passing urine, do not make wudhu immediately. Wait for a little while (e.g. 15, 20 minutes) so that all the urine drops can come out. Place tissue paper on that area so that the remainder urine drops will be absorbed in the tissue paper. Once all the urine drops have come out, you should make wudhu and perform your Salaah. 

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