Posted on

Hi all readers! Are you looking for an explanation of “do you have to do full wudu if you fart?”? If your answer is “Yes”, congratulations! Now you are reading the right article. Why? Because that is what I will explain in this article. As Muslims, we must understand that. That’s why I wrote this article. So, you should read it to the end!

Specifically, there are three important things about “do you have to do full wudu if you fart?” which I will explain in this article. The three important things I mean are as follows:

  1. What Happens If You Fart During Wudu?
  2. Why Farts Breaks Your Wudu?
  3. Do You Have to Do Full Wudu If You Fart?

What Happens If You Fart During Wudu?

The first important thing about “do you have to do full wudu if you fart?” what I will explain now is “what happens if you fart during wudu?”. I want you to understand that first before you read any further explanations in this article because that is one of the important questions in this discussion that should be well understood.

Wudu is one way to purify the body from minor hadas. In wudu, there are several parts of the body that must be washed and rubbed. Some parts of the body that must be washed are the face, the palms of the hands up to the elbows, and the two feet to the ankles. Some parts of the body that must be rubbed are some hair and two ears. In general, Muslims perform wudu before they pray, tawaf, read the Quran, and so on.

If we have done all the things that are obligatory in wudu, our wudu is valid and we are pure from minor hadas.

But one thing that some Muslims don’t understand is, “what happens if you fart during wudu?”.

The answer is very simple, that if you fart during wudu, you have not performed wudu because some of the things you have done during wudu have been broked because you have farted. That’s the answer.

That’s a brief explanation of “what happens if you fart during wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.

Why Farts Breaks Your Wudu?

The second important thing about “do you have to do full wudu if you fart?” what I will explain now is “why farts wudu breaks your wudu?”. I want you to understand that now because it is one of the important questions on this topic that must be well understood. There are some Muslims who do not understand that well.

In general, if we read some Islamic legal literature on farting and wudu, we will find an explanation that there are three reasons why farting break wudu. The three reasons I mean are as follows:

One: fart is one of those things that comes out of the back hole (anus or الدُّبُرُ).

I think the first reason why farts break wudu is very obvious. Fart is one of the things that come out of the back hole (anus or الدُّبُرُ). I’ve explained that in the previous few paragraphs.

Two: the hadith that explains that farting is one of the things that break wudu.

There are many hadiths about farting. Some examples are as follows:

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قاَلَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِذَا وَجَدَ أَحَدُكُمْ فِيْ بَطْنِهِ شَيْئًا فَأَشْكَلَ عَلَيْهِ أَخَرَجَ مِنْهُ شَيْءٌ أَمْ لَا ؟ فَلَا يَخْرُجَنَّ مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ حَتَّى يَسْمَعَ صَوْتًا أَوْ يَجِدَ رِيْحًا . أَخْرَجَهُ مُسْلِمٌ

From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “If one of you finds something in his stomach, then he doubts whether something has come out of him or not? So, he is not allowed to leave the mosque until he hears a sound or smells an aroma.” This hadith was narrated by Muslim.

عَنْ عَلِيٍّ بْنِ طَلْقٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إِذَا فَسَا أَحَدُكُمْ فِي الصَّلَاةِ فَلْيَنْصَرِفْ وَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ وَلْيُعِدْ الصَّلَاةَ . رَوَاهُ الْخَمْسَةَ

From Ali bin Thalq radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) has said, “If one of you has emitted a soundless wind from his anus while praying (salat), then let him go out and perform wudu, then repeat the prayer (salat).” The hadith was narrated by five people (Ahmad, Abu Daud, at-Tirmidhi, an-Nasa’i, Ibn Majah).

وَعَنْ عَبَّادِ بْنِ تَمِيمٍ ، عَنْ عَمِّهِ ، أَنَّهُ شَكَا إِلَى رَسُوْلِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الرَّجُلُ الَّذِي يُخَيَّلُ إِلَيْهِ أَنَّهُ يَجِدُ الشَّىْءَ فِي الصَّلاَةِ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ‏:‏ لاَ يَنْفَتِلْ أَوْ لاَ يَنْصَرِفْ حَتَّى يَسْمَعَ صَوْتًا أَوْ يَجِدَ رِيحًا ‏‏

From ‘Abbad bin Tamim, from his uncle, that there was once a man who complained to the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that he hesitated as if he found something (fart) in his prayer (salat). He then said, “He must not move or leave until he hears the voice or smells the smell.”

Three: if a Muslim has farted, he has a small hadas.

We can find an explanation that farting is one of the things that causes Muslims to have a small hadas in the hadith below:

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : لَا يَقْبَلُ اللهُ صَلَاةَ أَحَدِكُمْ إِذَا أَحْدَثَ حَتَّى يَتَوَضَّأَ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Allah does not accept someone’s prayer from you if he has hadas (small hadas) until he performs wudu.” This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

That’s a brief explanation of “why farts wudu breaks your wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
