I cannot keep my Wudhu


Assalam Alaiykum,


I have a question regarding wadu. My wadu breaks frequently during the namaz due to gas problem. I do want to do wadu but we have namehram in our house and I cannot go every time the wadu breaks. Can I do taimon instead and carry on with my rest of the namaz. Is there any other way I can complete my namaz even if my wadu breaks down in the middle of the namaz.


Thank you very much for the support.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Beloved Brother,

Having Ghair-Mahram in the house is not a valid excuse to avoid making wudhu. You should arrange going to the wudhu facilities through your Mahram women and make wudhu.

If your gas continuous for a complete Salaah time, not leaving enough time to perform wudhu and Fardh Salaah then you will be regarded as a Ma’zur. A Ma’zur performs wudhu for every Salaah time. His wudhu will remain intact for the complete Salaah time. The expiry of the Salaah time and any other impurity besides the gas will break his wudhu. [1]

You may refer to the following link for more details on the rules of a Ma’zur.



And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

الدر المختار وحاشية ابن عابدين (رد المحتار) (1/ 305) [1]

(وصاحب عذر من به سلس) بول لا يمكنه إمساكه (أو استطلاق بطن أو انفلات ريح أو استحاضة) أو بعينه رمد أو عمش أو غرب، وكذا كل ما يخرج بوجع ولو من أذن وثدي وسرة (إن استوعب عذره تمام وقت صلاة مفروضة)

بأن لا يجد في جميع وقتها زمنا يتوضأ ويصلي فيه خاليا عن الحدث (ولو حكما) لأن الانقطاع اليسير ملحق بالعدم (وهذا شرط) العذر (في حق الابتداء، وفي) حق (البقاء كفى وجوده في جزء من الوقت) ولو مرة (وفي) حق الزوال يشترط (استيعاب الانقطاع) تمام الوقت (حقيقة) لأنه الانقطاع الكامل
