If he knows without doubt that wind has passed, then he should
leave the prayer. However, if he is in doubt but is not certain, then he should
not leave unless he becomes certain--by hearing the wind pass or smelling it.
If he finds that he has passed wind, he should leave; otherwise he should pay
no attention to it. The evidence: Abu Huriara, (may Allah be pleased
with him) said, "The Messenger of Allah (peace
be upon him) said: 'If one is in prayer and feels movement in his behind, (and
is in question whether) he has passed wind or not, and he is in doubt, then
he should not leave unless he hears the sound or detects the smell".1
And this is one of the significant Islamic prescriptions for curing waswasa
(insinuations from the whispering of shaitan [Satan]).
