Struggling To Keep My Ritual Purity: Is There Any Leeway?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Salam Alaykum,

I have to make wudu for every prayer because I constantly break my wudu by passing wind. During Ramadan if I make one wudu for ‘isha prayer and taraweeh is that okay? Or should I renew wudu for each prayer and each set of taraweeh? Also for Friday prayer, should I wait till just before the sheikh starts praying after the lecture or can I make wudu before I leave home?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

Do not repeat your ablution (wudu) unless you hear or smell something.

The devil is quite good at giving believers a hard time. The religion is ease. If there is no ease, something has been misunderstood. The wudu is not supposed to be a difficult nor a time consuming act.

I’d suggest seeking out reliable scholars who can assist you further. If confused, ask. The cure to confusion is but to ask, said the Holy Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace).
