Doubt regading an obstacle after wuḍū’

Q: Assuming that after wuḍū’, I see something on the wuḍū’ members while I doubt whether or not it constitute an obstacle to prevent water from reaching the wuḍū’ members, may I say my prayer with that wuḍū’?

A: If you do not know whether it was there at the time of wuḍū’ or occurred later, your wuḍū’ is valid. Yet, if you know that you did not pay attentention to the obstacle, you should, by obligatory caution, make wuḍū’ again.
