Should a ma’zoor make istinja before every Salaah?

Q: Islam has allowed a mazoor with urinary incontinence to pray Quran and namaz with new wudhu but what about istinja? My situation is not good. I really want to pray all namaz but I am finding it very difficult. I have two questions?

1. Do we need to do istinja before every wudhu and

2. If I am out and I don’t find any private place for istinja, so in this case do I have to only make wudhu and pray namaaz?



1. It is not compulsory.

2. As above.

For further details regarding a ma’zoor refer to

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