Unsure as to Whether I had Passed Wind While Performing Tawaf Question#38
In Mecca al-Mukarramah, while performing the tawaf al-wada' and after I had made five circuits around the Ka'bah I felt some movement in my backside, so Iblis began whispering to me that I had passed wind but I did not adhere to his whispering because I did not feel that I had passed any wind from my anus, and I had completely lost the sense of smell, so I sought refuge in Allah and put my faith in Allah and continued performing the tawaf and then (upon completion) performed the two rak'ah's (of prayer). So is there anything in this or is there anything upon me?
The basic rule is that you remain in the state of purification, as the occurrence of doubt as to whether you passed wind does not nullify your state of purification (until you are absolutely sure), so your tawaf and your prayer afterwards is correct/sound, (insha'Allah). And with Allah lies all success and may Allah send prayers and salutations upon our Prophet (peace be upon him) and his family and his companions.
