***keep_mailing*** Istinjaa’ for breaking wind


Question: Our religious studies teacher told us that it is makrooh (disliked) to do wudoo' after breaking wind, and that if a person passes wind from his back passage after making wudoo', it is makrooh for him to do wudoo' again. Is this correct?

Praise be to Allaah.

Doing istinjaa' after breaking wind is disliked because it is extreme, but if a person passes wind after making wudoo', this invalidates his wudoo', according to the consensus of the Muslim scholars. Washing the private parts is not called wudoo'; it is called istinjaa' if water is used and istijmaar if stones or similar materials are used.




Does a person have to do istinjaa' (wash the private parts with water) every time he wants to do wudoo'?

Praise be to Allaah.

Istinjaa' is not necessary each time a person wants to do wudoo'. It is essential after passing urine or stools, when a person must wash his private parts before doing wudoo' for prayer.
