Uncertainty during sallah

Q:

Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabaratuhu, My question goes like this, Sir whenever I pray sallah I always feel like I’m passing wind ( fart ) to the extent that I’m uncertain if it’s real or not. Pls what do I do.

A:

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

It is related from Abbad ibn Tamim from Abdullah ibn Zayd bin Asim al-Mazini (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said, “A complaint was made to the Prophet (peace be upon him) about a man who sensed something (that is, he felt his ablution was nullified)  during prayer. The Prophet said, ‘He should not leave (the prayer) until he hears a sound or smells something.”

Based on this hadith, scholars concluded the legal maxim which says, ‘Certainty is not overruled by doubt.’

When one doubts about breaking of his ablution after certainly of performing it, Shafi`i scholars maintained that the status quo ante i.e. state of purity is to prevail.

Doubt has to be overridden and one may offer prayer without renewing his ablution.

Almighty Allah knows best.
