Feeling gas in one’s stomach

Question

If a person is doing wudoo’ and hears his stomach rumble, but does not pass wind from his back passage, what is the ruling? Does he still have wudoo’ or does this break his wudoo’?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

If a person has wudoo’ and hears the sound of wind or gas inside his stomach, this does not break his wudoo’ if he does not pass anything, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If any one of you notices something in his stomach and is not sure whether anything came out of him, he should not leave the mosque unless he hears a sound or smells a smell.”

(Reported by Muslim, 1/190)
