Frontal Gas from women in WuduCategory: QuestionsAuthor "mehdi@al-khoei.org"Frontal Gas from women in Wudu
Seyyed asked 11 months ago

Asalamualaikum,
I would like to know if air escaping from a woman’s front breaks her wudu. Many women after giving birth or sometimes generally (with or without kids) get air trapped in their front and often with certain physical movements (for example: during prayer) causes the trapped air or air bubbles to escape. Since the air produced has not come from the intestines or the anus, and most often is trapped air however the air can remain trapped for hours before releasing due to activity or movement… so does the air escaping the front of a woman even after hours of being trapped void or invalidate her wudu?

أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم

بِسْمِ ٱللَّٰهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Based on your specific question and information provided.

From the Jurisprudence Perspective: 

There are seven things that invalidate wuḍūʾ:

1. urinating; and apparently included in the ruling of urinating is the similar moisture that comes out after urinating and before performing istibrāʾ;

2. defecating;

3. passing wind of the stomach and of the intestine from the anus;

4. sleeping, which means that simultaneously one’s eyes do not see and one’s ears do not hear; however, if one’s eyes do not see but his ears hear, his wuḍūʾ does not become invalid;

5. things that cause one to lose his mind, such as insanity, intoxication, and unconsciousness;

6. istiḥāḍah of a woman,

7. janābah; and based on recommended precaution, all things for which one must perform ghusl.
