Assalam o Alaikum. often it happens that i feel that gas might have been released during Salah. I know that in such a case of doubt , Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam ) ordered to not leave the Salah unless one hears a sound or finds a smell. I am probably an OCD type person and sometimes i feel that i do find a smell but its very vague and maybe from my imagination. It does not exactly seem like the smell of gas/fart. In such case, should i continue my Salah?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

If you are certain then you terminate your Salah with Salam then redo your Salah with fresh Wudhu, otherwise you must discard your doubts and continue your Salah.

And Allah knows best
