Urge to relieve oneself during prayer


If one is in salah and after starting salah is in need to answer the call of nature but can hold it until the end of salah, should one wait till the end of salah or should one go immediately Answer: ﺑﺴﻢ اﷲ اﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ اﻟﺮﺣﯿﻢ In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

The ruling will be based on how much the need of answering the call of nature is. Hence, if he has such a strong urge to use the restroom or pass wind that it preoccupies his mind from concentrating during prayer, then it becomes necessary for him to break his prayer and relieve himself on the condition that he does not fear the expiry of the prayer time. However, if the need to use the restroom or pass wind is very weak that it does not preoccupy one’s mind from concentrating in prayer, then it would be permissible for him to continue his prayer until he finishes it.
