Istinjaa’ for breaking wind

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Our religious studies teacher told us that it is makrooh (disliked) to do wudoo’ after breaking wind, and that if a person passes wind from his back passage after making wudoo’, it is makrooh for him to do wudoo’ again. Is this correct?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

Doing istinjaa’ after breaking wind is disliked because it is extreme, but if a person passes wind after making wudoo’, this invalidates his wudoo’, according to the consensus of the Muslim scholars. Washing the private parts is not called wudoo’; it is called istinjaa’ if water is used and istijmaar if stones or similar materials are used.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
