Is there any kind of Sadaqah which

Q: When I perform Wudu’ (ablution) for Salah (prayer), I break wind a lot, which makes me suppress the release of gas in order not to pass wind before Salah. I find great difficulty in doing so, but if I do not do that, I will pass wind and my Wudu’ will become invalid. I would like to find a solution for this case. Should I perform Wudu’ and then ignore whatever comes out of me after that or not? May Allah protect you.


A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. You should try to avoid passing wind until you offer Salah. But if you cannot prevent the passing of wind and it is continuously released as you described, then you have to perform Wudu’ when you intend to offer Salah. Anything that comes out after that will not invalidate your Wudu’ as long as you are at the time of prayer. For one of the basic rules of Shari‘ah (Islamic law) is that hardship brings ease. (Part No. 5; Page No. 411) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
