Does the passing of wind, from the anus without a smell, invalidate prayer?

Does the passing of wind, from the anus without a smell, invalidate prayer?

Answer

If a person is certain of having passed wind even if it was with no smell, then both his/her ablution and prayer are invalidated, thus he/she should remake ablution and re-perform prayer.
