Urinary Dribbling During Salah: Validity of Prayer Questioned

Q: During Asr prayer today, I felt the urge to go to the washroom, but due to laziness, I controlled it and established Salah in that state. Now, I suffer from the disease of urine drops coming out (urinary dribbling), and I was getting some doubts during Salah (I prayed Asr prayer and some additional prayers) that my urine has come out, but I ignored those feelings saying to myself that these are waswaas. After finishing prayer, I went to the washroom and checked my private parts with some toilet paper by gently touching the opening of my penis with the toilet paper, and it was dry (no urine). However, when I used another piece of toilet paper to check (and this time I touched/wiped the penis not as gently as before), some urine appeared on the toilet paper. Is it reasonable to assume that prior to rubbing/cleaning my penis with the toilet paper, no urine had come out, and that my Salah was valid? Or do I need to repeat the prayers?


A: If you are sure that nothing came out before pressing the private part on the second time, then your Salaah is valid.

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