I am just a 14 year old boy right now and I have had discovered urinary incontinence since i started offering namaz regularly (10/11 year old), I had these issues before but ignored them as I didn't perform prayers and it didn't affect me. Now what are the rulings for me. Will this break my wudu. How should I cover it, etc. Also, should i go to masjid for performing namaz or not. Although I am trying to cure this by doing prescribed exercises but until then what to do

  • It is said that imam Malik had this problem and therefore stopped going to the mosque due to his respect for the Prophet pbuh, at least this is one explanation why he stopped going to the mosque and following funerals etc. he himself only said that he had a good excuse. But this shouldn't hinder you to go to a mosque, I'm not 100% sure about the ruling details, but you should nevertheless perform wudu' for each prayer and pray as nothing happened.

If your urinary incontinence is constant, when prayer comes, cover your private area and pray as if it is not coming out. If you are too worried about the urine, then Allah knows that you are not praying with your full mind and heart.

If it only comes out at certain moments, such as every half hour or quarter hour, then pray during those breaks in time even if you miss congregation


As per Islamic teachings namaz will be prayed in all circumstances and there is no excuse in it. As for as your disease is concerned Islamic scholars suggest a solution for this issue. You can even go in mosque by changing your trouser for particular namaz and fresh wadu. In this case it is necessary that you should have a new trouser for each namaz if urine drops are continuing. ..

The rules around namaz allow for medical conditions. If it's not possible to attend the mosque due to your condition then it is permitted to do the obligatory prayers at home.

And Allah knows best.
