Hi all readers! Are you looking for an explanation of “what happens if you fart while doing wudu?”? 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. So, you should read it to the end!
Specifically, there are two important things about “what happens if you fart while doing wudu?” which I will explain in this article. Two important things I mean are as follows:
Is It a Sin to Fart While Doing Wudu?
The first important thing about “what happens if you fart while doing wudu?” what I will explain now is “is it a sin to fart while doing wudu?”. I want you to understand that first before you read any further explanations in this article because that is one of the questions in this discussion that should be well understood.
Farting or flatus is a normal biological process, which occurs regularly and routinely and is normal for everyone.
Farting usually occurs several times a day, and is more common when you eat gassy foods. But on average, a person farts 5 to 15 times a day. In fact, some people may fart more than 40 times a day. This condition is known as excessive farting. Usually this is caused by problems in the digestive system.
What it means is that farting is a normal thing experienced by everyone, including Muslims. They can fart anywhere and anytime.
In Islam, there are many special discussions about farting. We can find one such discussion in the hadith below:
عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : الْعَيْنُ وِكَاءُ السَّهِ فَإِذَا نَامَتِ الْعَيْنَانِ اِسْتَطْلَقَ الْوِكَاءُ . رَوَاهُ أَحْمَدُ وَالطَّبْرَانِيُّ وَزَادَ : وَ مَنْ نَامَ فَلْيَتَوَضَّأْ
From Mu’awiyah radiyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah sallallhu alaihi wa sallam said, “The eye is the anal cord. If two eyes have slept then the string will be untied.” The hadith was narrated by Ahmad and ath-Thabrani. He (ath-Thabrani) added (the hadith editor), “Whoever has been sleeping, let him perform wudu.”
The hadith does not specifically explain fart (I have explained several things about it in previous articles). But if we read the hadith, we can understand that sleep is one of the conditions that can cause a person to fart even though he is not aware of it.
Now, if you ask me, “is it a sin to fart while doing wudu?”, the answer is “No.” The reason for that was because it was a normal thing that everyone experienced. Personally, I have not found an explanation that farting while performing wudu is a sin.
That’s a brief explanation of “is it a sin to fart while doing wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
