        Reciting Prayer with the Wuḍū’ performd for One’s Preceding Prayer

        Q: May one perform the ẓuhr prayer by means of the same wuḍū’ which had been made for (purposes of) the preceding fajr prayer?
        A: Whenever a wuḍū’ has been made correctly – be it for prayer purposes, reading the Qur’an or just to attain a state of ritual purity – one may continue to perform any ritual or action which conditionally requires a wuḍū’ as long as one’s wuḍū’ hasn’t become void. Even if one doubts as to whether one’s wuḍū’ has become void or not, one may neglect and not pay heed to such doubts and presume the wuḍū’ has not become void.
