Hadith on wind breaking wudu

Salam alikom
Is there any Hadith that wind (gas) breaks wudu ?


There is a hadith in Bukhari which states that passing wind invalidates wudu. The hadith is as follows:

The Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “The prayer of a person who carries out ‘hadath’ is not accepted until they perform wudu.”

A person from Hadramawt asked, “What is ‘hadath’, oh Abu Hurayrah?” He replied, “Passing wind.”

صحيح البخاري (1/ 39)
أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ، يَقُولُ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «لاَ تُقْبَلُ صَلاَةُ مَنْ أَحْدَثَ حَتَّى يَتَوَضَّأَ» قَالَ رَجُلٌ مِنْ حَضْرَمَوْتَ: مَا الحَدَثُ يَا أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ؟، قَالَ: فُسَاءٌ أَوْ ضُرَاطٌ
