Ma'zoor performing salaah with soiled clothing

Q: I wanted to ask that I am a mazoor with urine incontinence and due to this I have to keep tissue paper all the time, but I have heard recently that keeping tissue paper in underwear will raise the temprature hot and it could destroy my sperm count. So can I just pray while wearing underwear and not tissue?

A: Yes it is permissible. If before performing Salaah you find your underwear soiled with urine, then you should remove it or wash the soiled area and thereafter perform the Salaah. However, if the drops of urine continue to come out and it is not possible for you to perform the Salaah without the drops stopping, then performing the Salaah with clothing that is soiled with urine will be permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
