A: Don’t pay attention to doubts. Consider your namaaz to be valid.

اليقين لا يزول بالشك (الأشباه و النظائر 1/183)

قال الشامي في رد المحتار : قوله ( وموسوس ) بالكسر ولا يقال بالفتح ولكن موسوس له أو إليه أي تلقى إليه الوسوسة وقال الليث الوسوسة حديث النفس وإنما قيل موسوس لأنه يحدث بما في ضميره وعن الليث لا يجوز طلاق الموسوس قال يعني المغلوب في عقله وعن الحاكم هو المصاب في عقله إذا تكلم يتكلم بغير نظام كذا في المغرب (رد المحتار 4/ 224)
