Question: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu,
If one is suffering from excessive gas should he pray sitting down if that will stop the problem from occurring? Even for obligatory prayers?
If I pray standing, I often find it very difficult to maintain wudu.
Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.
No, you should pray standing, and ignore any misgivings and feelings unless you hear or smell something.
And ask Allah to lift the difficulty from you by His Infinite Grace.
And Allah alone gives success.
