Doubts regarding passing wind

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. Quite frequently while performing salaah, I hold my wind in and while doing so, there is a sound from my anus but wind is not released and there is no smell, when this happens, is my wudhu broken?

2. While performing salaah, if I hold my wind and there is a sound from anus but no smell and I’m uncertain if wind is released, must I repeat my wudhu? ( I have a major problem with doubts) Please assist as it is affecting the quality of my salaah.



1. No.

2. If you are not certain that your wudhu has broken, then regard yourself to be in the state of wudhu.

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