Praise be to Allaah.
The one who suffers
incontinence, whether it involves urine or madhiy, has to do two things:
has to wash the place and then wrap it with a piece of cloth or a
handkerchief to prevent the urine or madhiy spreading.
has to do wudoo’ after the time for prayer begins, if anything has come out
He does not have to wash the
place and the wrapper again for every prayer, unless he has neglected to
Ibn Qudaamah (may Allaah have
mercy on him) said in al-Mughni (1/206): The one who suffers from
urinary incontinence or a great deal of madhiy that does not stop is like
the woman who suffers from irregular and lengthy bleeding: he should do
wudoo' for every prayer, after washing his private parts. The woman who
suffers from irregular bleeding, and the one who suffers from urinary
incontinence or excessive madhiy, and others like them who continually break
their wudoo' and cannot maintain their tahaarah (purity), have to do wudoo'
for every prayer after washing the site of impurity, wrapping it and trying
to avoid emission of that which breaks wudoo' as much as possible. End
It says in Sharh Muntaha
al-Iraadaat (1/120): everyone whose impurity is ongoing, such as a woman
with irregular bleeding, or one who has urinary incontinence, or excessive
madhiy, or continual breaking of wind, has to wash the site that is
contaminated with impurity and wrap it up, i.e., take precautions by doing
that which will prevent emission as much as possible, such as using a cotton
pad or tying it with a clean piece of cloth. But he does not have to repeat
it, meaning washing and wrapping for every prayer, if there has been no
negligence on his part, because this condition is overwhelming and complete
precautions cannot be taken against it. So the one whose cause of impurity
is ongoing should do wudoo' at the time of every prayer if something comes
out. End quote.
Some fuqaha’ do not think
that it is obligatory to wrap it and tie a piece of cloth.
Al-Hattaab al-Maaliki (may
Allaah have mercy on him) said in al-Mudawwanah: It is mustahabb to
take precautions by wrapping it with a piece of cloth. Sanad said: It is not
obligatory, because he is going to pray with the piece of cloth on which
there is some impurity, just as he would pray in his contaminated clothes if
he did not use it. Sanad said: Is it mustahabb to change the cloth?
Al-Ibyaani said: It is mustahabb for him to do that at the time of prayer
and wash it, but according to Sahnoon, it is not mustahabb, and washing the
private parts is easier for him than that. End quote from Mawaahib
As you are putting a piece of
sticky tape to prevent the madhiy spreading, this is appropriate protection
and you do not have to change the tape for every prayer.
And Allaah knows best.
