Question:

 

If during prayer I am about to pass wind but I hold it in and I am about 90% sure that I held it in but then get a slight smell which may be of wind is similar to it but I am not fully sure if it is the smell of wind or something else then should I repeat my alāh?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

In the described scenario, the ruling is that until you are not absolutely sure about passing wind, your prayer will be deemed valid. – (See: Rad Al-Muḥtār, Vol 1, Page 283, Dār ‘Ālam Al-Kutub1, Al-Qawāid Al-Fiqhīyyah, Page 15, Dār Al-Tirmidhī2)
