Release gas while 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.
Beloved brother, the principle in Islam is that one must act only on convictions, not on doubts! Thus, only if you are absolutely convinced that you have released wind after performing wudu for prayer, either by hearing its sound or through its foul smell, only then will you have to repeat the wudu again.
But if you have a doubt that wind might have been released, or your stomach is making sounds, or any other doubts in that regard whatsoever; you should not worry about it at all, as doubts do not invalidate your wudu for prayer. Only if you are absolutely convinced that you have released wind, you will have to redo the wudu.
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).
Please remove all your doubts and hesitations regarding your feeling that you might have released wind, unless and until you are absolutely convinced that you have indeed released it.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
