Answered by Shaykh Yusuf Weltch
Question: Does the exiting of a praying time invalidate the ablution (wudu)?
Answer: The exiting of the prayer time does not invalidate the ablution. However, if one is considered ‘excused’ by the Sacred Law the ablution terminates at the exiting of every prayer time.
One is only considered excused if, for example, they have a nose bleed and it never ceases for them to be able to make an ablution and prayer. [Maraqi al-Falah]
How To Deal With Waswasa
For the one who is constantly in doubt abandoning caution is often the best cure.
“As for the one who is often inflicted with waswasa, it is necessary for them to sever the cause of the waswasa and not to give it any consideration. This is because it is the doing of Shaytan and we have been commanded to oppose him.” [Hashiyah Ibn Abidin]
The long-term cure for these constant doubts is to seek a deeper understanding of Islamic Knowledge. With knowledge, Shaytan can not deceive you with his whispers and plots. I would advise that you find authentic scholars in your area and study with them a basic text in Islamic Jurisprudence.
Please note that SeekersGuidance.org has free classes available in Islamic Jurisprudence and many other subjects.
May Allah ease your difficulty
