If a person who is praying is in doubt as to whether he has passed wind or not, or he feels some movement in his abdomen, should he stop praying or should he continue?

If he is certain that he has passed wind, he should stop praying, but if he is uncertain or doubtful, he should not stop – until he becomes sure of it, either by hearing a sound or by smelling an odour. If he finds that he has passed wind, he should stop praying, otherwise he should not pay any attention to it.

The evidence for this is the hadeeth reported by Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him): "The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 'If any one of you is praying and feels some movement in his back passage, and is in doubt as to whether he has passed wind or not, he should not stop praying until he hears a sound or detects an odour.'" (Reported by Abu Dawood, 177; see also Saheeh al-Jaami', 750).

This is one of the important Islamic prescriptions for curing waswaas (the insinuating whispers of Shaytaan).
