    Title: problem of passing wind

    Question: I have a problem of passing wind which is sometimes so troubling that I pass wind 2-3 times in one salah or during performing wudhu itself. However, sometimes I can offer salah without passing wind. I am going to Hajj in-shaAllah. I have difficulty in holding wudhu during tawaf also. It is also a problem when I am offering namaz with jamah behind the imam in Makkah. Also, if I come under mazur category, can I read Quran with the single wudhu or do I have to perform wudhu each time it breaks during Quran reading also? Please help me with this vexing problem. I would be really grateful to you.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1329/1003/B=10/1434) When you set forth for hajj, start supplicating Allah humbly in this way: O Allah remove this problem of repeatedly passing wind so that I could do tawaf satisfactorily and offer five times of salah. Also supplicate the same when you reach there while drinking Zam Zam water. In-shaAllah, this problem shall be removed. However, if this problem is not removed then make wudhu when the time of salah starts and you may offer salah, tawaf and recite the holy Quran within the particular salah time, though the wind keeps on passing. You may offer salah, do tawaf and recite the holy Quran with this one wudhu.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
