Questioner: Is it appropriate to resist the urge to pass wind while on Solaah (prayer)?
Dr Sharof: While on Solaat (prayer)
Dr Sharof: If you resist it, and this resistance prevents you from passing it, then your Solaat (prayer) is invalid.
Questioner: What if I do not resist it?
Dr Sharof: Be patient
The Congregation: Laughing mode activated!
Dr Sharof: When I said if you resist it and this resistance prevents you from passing it, this implies that some other statements will follow. So, however, if you feel the urge (to pass wind) and you do not resist it, and you do not pass wind, there is nothing wrong with your Solaat (prayer). We have explained it here. Na’am.
