Doubts in passing wind

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.  

Answer

If one is certain that he has passed wind through the anus then it will be necessary to repeat the wudhu. However if one has a doubt of whether he had passed wind or not then his wudhu will still be considered intact.

(Fatawa Hindiyyah p.8 v.1)

There is a principle in Islamic jurisprudence which is:

“Certainty is not lifted by a doubt.” (Al Ashbah Wan Nadhair p.60)

Therefore if one was doubtful and uncertain of breaking his wudhu then such a doubt will not invalidate one’s wudhu, as the certainty of wudhu will not be lifted by the doubt of breaking his wudhu.

Only Allah Knows Best
