I have one problem for the last 15-17 years and it is becoming worse with the passage of time. When I have to do wudhu, I am in great stress because my mind is occupied with the idea that I am going to do a very important thing and if I do not do it properly my prayers will not be accepted. When I start doing wudu i.e when I put water in my mouth to rinse it, I feel as if I have passed a very small amount of wind (flatulance), without sound or smell. So I start again, however I keep getting this feeling again and again. As a result I end up spending an hour or more in doing wudu. This condition is worse when there is less time left for the prayers. Some times I cannot overcome this thought and so can’t do wudu in time and miss my prayers. This is very distressing and depressing. Although my mind is very much sure that I have not passed the wind, rather it was most probably just a movement of the gastrointestinal tract yet I can’t ignore it and complete my wudu. As most of the advice about ignoring doubts wudu relates to doubts after completing wudu (i.e. hadees about hearing sound or feeling bad smell) so I feel trapped in this problem. Please guide me what should I do in this case? Should I ignore this thought if I have not heard sound or felt any bad smell? Also, what if I ignore this thought and complete my wudu, and in reality I might have passed the wind, would my wudu and prayers be ok? Because it is a very old problem so for psychological reasons it may take some time to go away but I am sure your advice will help me a lot to overcome this problem.

Satan is playing havoc. Ignore the whole situation wait for huge sound then know wind came out otherwise carry on with life. Ignore, regard wudhu as valid and carry on with life.
