    Title: Wudhu for a person having problem of regular wind passing

    Question: I have a problem of passing wind at regular short intervals. So, I offer one namaz with one wudhu. And I do wudhu after the prayer time starts. (1) In maghrib, with a fear of losing Jamat or losing a rakat, sometimes I did wudhu a few minutes before the time of the prayer started. The same I did in Fajr in Ramadhan. Is my namaz valid? Can I follow the above in future? (2) Sometimes I have to go somewhere. In a fear that I won't get the opportunity to do wudhu there (e.g., unavailability of water), can I do wudhu before leaving home when there is still time in the next prayer time (at least 30-45 minutes)? (3) Sometimes the wind passing is so frequent that I'm even unable to complete my wudhu. What should I do in this case? (4) I usually recite the Quran after Fajr. When Fajr time ends and the 20 minutes makrooh time starts, do I have to do wudhu again to recite Quran in those 20 minutes. Again when this makrooh time ends and Ishraq time starts, do I have to do wudhu again to continue reciting? (Or to offer Namaz-e-Ishraq?)

    (1) In the question mentioned above, if you constantly pass out the wind and do not get enough time during the full time of a salah to be able to perform the fardh salah of that time, then according to Shariah, you are a mazur person (excused). It would not be right for you to perform wudhu before salah time and offer salah with the same wudhu. The ruling for a mazur person is that he should perform wudhu only after the time of salah starts. It is necessary for you to reoffer the salahs that you have performed by performing wudhu before entering the time.

    (2) This method is not correct. The ruling for Shariah mazur person is that he would perform wudhu after entering the time of timely salah.

    (3) Wudhu would be valid in this case.

    (4) Wudhu done after sunrise (during makrooh time) is sufficient for Ishraq salah, tilawat etc. there is no need to make wudhu again after passing makrooh time.
