Q & A Wudu' and Purity

Q & A: “breaking wind and ghusl…”


Q. salam bro does breaking wind invalidate the ghusl?


            Breaking wind during the full ritual bath (ghusl) does not invalidate it; however wudu’ is invalidated. Imam al-Quduri writes in his primer on fiqh about that which obligates ghusl:

And those aspects that necessitate ghusl are: [1] the emission of semen by way of spurting or excitement in a man and woman; [2] Contact of the two circumcised parts [even] without emission; [3] menstruation and [4] post-natal bleeding…”[1]

والمعاني الموجبة للغسل : إنزال المني على وجه الدفق والشهوة من الرجل والمرأة والتقاء الختانين من غير إنزال والحيض والنفاس

Imam al-Shurunbulali in his primer on Hanafi fiqh on the devotional 5 pillars of Islam writes:

“12 things invalidate wudu’: [1] whatever exits the two passageways except air from the rear according to the most correct opinion […].”[2]

ينقض الوضوء اثنا عشرة شيئا  ما خرج من السبيلين إلا ريح القبل في الأصح

And Allah knows best.
