Question

Sometimes I need to defecate
before I pray, but I pray then I do
not feel that urge whilst I am
praying. Is my prayer acceptable?
And sometimes the opposite
happens – is my prayer acceptable
in that case?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for a person to
start praying when he is resisting
the urge to urinate or defecate,
because the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him)
said: “You should not pray when
food is ready or when resisting the
urge to urinate or
defecate.” (Narrated by Muslim in
his Saheeh). The reason for that –
and Allaah knows best – is that this
prevents a person from having the
necessary presence of mind and
humility in the prayer. However, if a
person prays in this state, his
prayer is valid although it is
somewhat lacking and is imperfect
because of the hadeeth quoted; he
does not have to repeat it. But if
you start to pray when you are not
resisting the urge to urinate or
defecate, then you start to feel that
need during the prayer, then the
prayer is valid and there is nothing
makrooh in it, so long as that need
does not prevent you from
completing the prayer.
And Allaah is the source of
strength. May Allaah bless our
Prophet Muhammad and his family
and companions, and grant them
peace.
