Doubting if one broke his wudhu

Q: I was doing wudu, I stopped because I felt the need to break wind, so I did that and sometimes when standing, it can feel like it is between the thighs, so I squatted briefly to expel trapped wind. Started doing wudu again and somewhere in it, I felt a bubble, not sure what it was though and I don’t think it came out of me, I think it was from my thighs and I don’t think I heard or smelt anything, just had the feeling of a bubble escaping from my thighs. I just ignored it and prayed. I had doubts about it but it was maghrib so I convinced myself I was in wudu and prayed, but now I don’t know.


A: If you are not certain that your wudhu had broken, then regard yourself to have been in the state of wudhu.

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