Very small fart

Fatwaa ID: 2071

Assalaamu 3laykum w r7matullah w barakatuh
If a very small fart comes out that doesn’t have smell or sound does your wifhu break

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

Yes. If one passes wind, wudhu will break irrespective of how big or small it is. The rule of smell or sound is applicable only in those cases where a person has OCD or suffers from waswasah and is thus uncertain whether or not he passed wind. If he is certain, like in your case, then this would not apply; the wudhu will be regarded to have been nullified.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
