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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear
witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His
Beloved brother, by the term ‘dribbling’ we assume that
you mean to enquire regarding the ruling of one who experiences the
unintentional dropping of urine or urine drops; if it is anything other than
that, we request you to kindly clarify the exact nature of the ‘dribbling
symptoms’ and we will strive to the best of our ability to guide you in
accordance of the light of the Quran and the Sunnah, Insha Allah.
Respected Brother, the organ of
the men, whereby the urine is discharged has a long tube, therefore it is possible that even after one
has washed one’s private area clean after relieving themselves; a few drops may remain in the tube which may
drop after one gets up or moves. If one
is absolutely convinced that some urine drops have fallen after he has cleansed
himself, he should wash his private
parts and the area of the clothes the urine drops might have touched, do the
wudu again and perform the prayers.
There is absolutely no need to do the full ‘ghusl’ or bath.
But if one only has a
doubt, or constantly doubts whether some
drops might have fallen or not, then one
should not let the doubt bother him. In
Islam, the determination of impurity is not on doubts; but rather on belief and
absolute conviction. Everything will be
considered pure, unless one has absolute conviction that an impurity has
touched it. If you have only a doubt
that urine drops might have leaked, then you should not act on these doubts;
but rather act only if you are absolutely convinced that an impurity has
touched you or your clothes.
If you are absolutely convinced that a few drops of urine have been discharged, you must wash your private parts and the area of the clothes where the drops might have touched, do the ‘wudu’, and make yourself available for prayers.
Hadrat Ali ibn Abi Taalib (r.a.) , “I used to have a great deal of prostatic
fluid flowing, so I asked a man to ask the Prophet (saws) about it (as I was shy to ask him, due to my
relationship with him through his daughter).
He asked him and the Prophet (saws), said, "Make ablution and wash
by al-Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi.
narrated, "I was bothered by a great deal of madhi (prostatic fluid), so I
went to the Prophet (saws), and informed him of this. He (saws) said 'It is sufficient for you to take a handful
of water and sprinkle it over (the madhi)."'
Beloved brother in Islam, if you have a genuine medical problem with your bladder, then Shariah allows that every time before the prayer wash your private parts, do the wudu and make yourself available for the prayer. If after the ‘wudu’, you still feel or doubt that a few drops of urine might have leaked, then take a handful of water and sprinkle it over the private area and perform the prayer without the least bit of hesitation. The All-Knowing, All-Merciful Lord knows the condition of each of His slaves and it is expected that He will accept your piety and your prayers.
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.
Your brother and
well wisher in Islam,
