Does Stomach Heartburn Damage Ablution (Wudu)? ~ Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain the status of an event that is often experienced by someone. Usually, the person experiences the incident because he wants to defecate or because his stomach is too full. Yup! The thing I mean is the stomach mules. When a person experiences this condition, he is usually not sure whether he is farting or not. The question is, can such conditions damage ablution (wudu)?
As always, before I answer the question above and speak more about “does stomach heartburn damage ablution (wudu)?”, I will quote the hadith of Prophet Muhammad.
Hadith About Stomach Heartburn and Ablution (Wudu)
The hadith about stomach heartburn and ablution (wudu) that I mean is 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 radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “If one of you finds something in his stomach, then he doubts whether something has come out of him (him) or not? So, he can’t leave the mosque until he hears a sound or sniffs a smell.” The hadith is narrated by Muslim.
All readers! Before I convey some points related to the hadith above, I would like to say that in Islamic teachings doubts cannot influence any law. All must be decided based on faith, such as hearing and sniffing.
There are a number of things we must know about the hadith above;
One; The hadith gives an example of the ethics of conveying something bad. In this hadith the Prophet Muhammad did not mention farting and farting directly. To mention these two things, he uses the word diction which can represent both; sound and smell.
Two; Fart can damage ablution (wudu).
