        Forgetting to Perform the Cautionary Prayer

        Q: During a ẓuhr prayer, I had acquired doubt between the third and fourth rak‘ahs and so the cautionary prayer became binding upon me; however, I forgot to say it. Then, during the fourth rak‘ah of the following ‘aṣr prayer, I recalled having not said the cautionary prayer out of forgetfulness. What ought I to do?
        A: One must immediately abandon one’s ‘aṣr prayer, say the required cautionary prayer and then, according to obligatory caution, say the ẓuhr prayer again.
