Passing gas without sound and smell

Fatwaa ID: 486

I passed gas in Salah during Fojor Namaj. I didn’t hear it or smell it. Will this break my Namaj?
Also I know it is not permissible to talk durring the Salah but are there any exceptions i.e a very important phone call?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. Wudhu is invalidated when one passes and even if there was sound or smell. It is obvious from your query that you are certain in regards to you passing wind. Your salaah was invalid. You must repeat it.
  2. There are no exceptions. Talking during the salaah invalidates the salaah in all conditions.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
