What Can I Do If Urine Drops Come Out During and Outside of Prayer?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Mawlana Ilyas Patel


I am certain about the discharge when pressure is exerted automatically on the area between the scrotum and anus during ruku‘ and sujud. It is not misgivings as I take all the measures you told me. Once the drops are out, there is no more discharge. It also happens when I am not praying after urinating; when there is pressure exerted on the area between the scrotum and anus while sitting, discharge happens.

It happened a few times where I had to break the same prayer twice because drops came out during ruku and sujud. I am certain about it and make wudu again.

My question is, despite taking all measures after urinating, are those drops excused if discharge happens a few times during the same prayer? Is it a hardship to do wudu many times for the same prayer?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate.

I pray you are in good faith and health. Thank you for your question.

You will only be excused if the urine drops do not allow you to perform the bare minimum wudu and prayer before coming out again. However, in your case, this is different. Therefore, you will perform your prayer as normal, and if urine drops come out, it will invalidate your wudu and prayer. [‘Ala’uddin Ibn ‘Abidin, al-Hadiyya al-‘Ala’iyya]

Advice and Suggestion

I suggest you perform your prayer well after you have urinated so your bladder is near empty or less likely for urine dribbles.

I advise you to do Kegel exercises that can prevent or control urinary incontinence and other pelvic floor problems. Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, which support the uterus, bladder, small intestine, and rectum. You can do Kegel exercises, also known as pelvic floor muscle training, just about anytime.
