Is urinary incontinence caused by the jinn, and what should he do when praying?

Is urinary incontinence caused by the jinn, and what should he do when praying?
I read one question about someone having trouble while making wudoo .I have similar problem, or even worst. When ever I want to pray I feel gas coming out of me, if I go to toilet for urine I spend more than 30 min but urine and other liquid keep on coming from my private part during salaat I have excessive desire to go to toilet, I have to repeat my ablution again and again this situation is really embarrassing me, it makes salaat very difficult for me and this really had affect my faith. I am sure is not a kind of illness because I have seen many doctors but no improvement, and also this problem comes only when I want to pray.

Some people said it could be a jinn which has entered my body.

Please tell me how can I do my salaat easily, can I pray more than one salaat with the same wudoo even when these things are coming out of me. If this is cause by Jinn how can I get ride of it?


Praise be to Allaah.


Urinary incontinence and similar conditions where liquid etc,
is passed involuntarily and one cannot control it, should not be given any
attention, rather the person should pray according to his situation, even if
that liquid etc. is emitted during prayer, because it is too difficult to
avoid it. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

 “and has not laid upon you in
religion any hardship”

[al-Hajj 22:78]

 But if he fears that his body or clothes may become
contaminated, he should wrap it (i.e. the private part) with a cloth or
similar, and pray after doing wudoo’, and he should not pay attention to
anything that comes out that he cannot control. This is an ordinary kind of
sickness, which is very common, and it is not caused by the jinn. Tahaarah
(purity) is essential so you have to renew it (i.e., renew wudoo’) for each
obligatory prayer.
