Breaking wind in prayer
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: i

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.139 Narrated by Abbas bin Tamim
My uncle asked Allah's Messenger (saws) about a person who imagined to have passed wind during the prayer. Allah' s Messenger (saws) replied: "He should not leave his prayers unless he hears sound or smells something."
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 310 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: No ablution is necessary except in the case of sound (of wind), or the foul smell (of wind).
Beloved brother, the principle in Islam is that one must act only on convictions, not on doubts! Thus, only if one is absolutely convinced that one have released wind after performing wudu or during prayer, either by hearing its sound or through its foul smell, only then would one have to repeat the wudu and prayer again.
But if one has a doubt that wind might have been released, or ones stomach is making sounds, or any other doubts in that regard whatsoever; one should not worry about it at all, as doubts do not invalidate ones wudu for prayer. Only if one are absolutely convinced that one has released wind, he will have to redo the wudu.
Your Question: if in the middle of namaaz you you break your wuzu, do you have to repeat that namaaz?
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 205 Narrated by Ali ibn Talq
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: When any of you breaks wind during the prayer, he should turn away and perform ablution and repeat the prayer.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.137 Narrated by Abu Huraira
Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "The prayer of a person who does Hadath is not accepted till he performs (repeats) the ablution." A person from Hadaramout asked Abu Huraira, "What is 'Hadath'?" Abu Huraira replied, "'Hadath' means the passing of wind from the anus."
To be in the state of wudu is an absolutely obligatory pre-condition when offering ones prayers. If one passes wind during prayers, the wudu would be considered broken and invalid; thus the person must leave the prayers immediately, re-do the wudu and then perform the prayer again.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
