a person performed Wudu' (Ablution) with the intention of performing Maghrib (Sunset) prayer only, then the time of `Isha' (Night) Prayer arrived while he was still maintaining his Wudu', and he performed `Isha' prayer (with this same Wudu'),
is this prayer valid or not?
All prayers whether obligatory or supererogatory are permissible after offering Taharah (ceremonial purification), even if the intention of performing it is not established at the time of Wudu', for
what was narrated by
Muslim on the authority of
(may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace be upon him):
offered all Salahs with one Wudu' on the day of conquering (Makkah).
Accordingly, praying `Isha' with the same Wudu' of Maghrib prayer is valid, even if the intention to do so is not established. The same applies to Dhuha and Zhuhr prayer, if a person performs Wudu' to pray Dhuha (Before Noon) and Zhuhr (Noon) prayer is due while still in the state of (Part No. 6; Page No. 204) Taharah, it is permissible to perform Zhuhr prayer with this same Wudu'.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
