Assalam 3laykum ikhwa;

Firstly, I hope you forgive my poor English, but in'sha2 Allah you may understand me.

I have doubts about which hadith we should follow:

لا وُضُوءَ إِلاَّ مِنْ صَوْتٍ أَوْ رِيحٍ
There no Wudu except for a sound or a smell.

Found at Jami` at-Tirmidhi 74, according to sunnah.com; which would make wudu only necessary if someone hears or smells the fart.

But there also others ahadeeth that establish the following:

لاَ يَنْصَرِفْ حَتَّى يَسْمَعَ صَوْتًا أَوْ يَجِدَ رِيحًا
"The Prophet was asked about doubts (concerning ablution) during prayer. He said: 'he should not leave until he hears a sound or detects an odor.'"

Found at Sahih al-Bukhari 177 according to sunnah.com; making this hadith only in the case of praying and in the case of doubts.

And then we have a hadith that establishes:

إِذَا كَانَ أَحَدُكُمْ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ فَوَجَدَ رِيحًا بَيْنَ أَلْيَتَيْهِ فَلاَ يَخْرُجْ حَتَّى يَسْمَعَ صَوْتًا أَوْ يَجِدَ رِيحًا
Allah's Messenger said: "When one of you is in the Masjid, and he senses wind between his buttocks then he should not exit until he hears a sound or smells an odor."

Which can be found at Jami` at-Tirmidhi 75 according to sunnah.com, and this case the hadith applies to the masjid only.

In thes differences among ahadeeth, I need your guide to behave properly and increase my imaam.

Fi amanillah wa ramadan mubarak

    There is no difference between these ahadith at all: Hadith one is about the reasons why one should perform wudu', hadith 2 is about when should one interrupt the prayer in order to regain taharah by performing wudu', and the 3rd hadith is about when doing so in a mosque in either case, praying or waiting for the prayer. And the reasons for all of this are the same the situation is different and described in each narrative. – Medi1Saif Apr 12 at 13:48
