Doubts with regards to wudhu

Q: What should you do when you don’t know, in the mean time, whilst your question is on its way to being answered, for example: I don’t know whether dead skin unattached from the skin is permeable or impermeable, a barrier to the skin if I use a lot of water and I have asked my question now, but in the mean time if I assume water reached and do my prayer in this Wudoo’ is this acceptable? Or what should a person do when they don’t know about something, carry on until they know? Sorry if its a complicated question.


A: Don’t allow your mind to go to all unnecessary doubts. Your wudhu is valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
