Shaitaan, when he cannot make you desert your prayer do you know what he does? He actually then makes you doubt your prayer and there are stages, I can quickly mention them. He first tries to make you not pray. ……
That wudu, you know the tap, it’s gonna be too cold and the water any excuse……
one of the devil’s plans to make you delay what you’re supposed to do so that you rush it or you end up not doing it as a result of the delay yet you intended to do it …..
He starts making you doubt, some people do I have wudu? Do I not have wudu? Trust me the last thing on your mind is valid. Allah doesn’t mean the fact that you are making wudu but you need it to fulfill the prayer.
People say I have very bad dreams. I say well you know you should try and do wudu before you sleep.
You don’t start doubting… don’t worry. The fact that you’ve tried to fulfill your prayer in the best possible way you could have. It’s accepted. Allah will not hold against you.for example if a person comes up and says do I have wudu or don’t I have wudu the hadith says well the last thing you can remember doing is valid.
If in the knowledge of Allah which you don’t know and may never know, If Allah knows that you didn’t really have wudu, he doesn’t mind at that juncture and he will still never hold it against you because you followed the other rule. The rule was whatever you remember last, la illah illa allah.
Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala knows none of us has a perfect salah, not a single one of us has an absolutely perfect salah but he also knows that we will all try our best. He will accept it from us just by the trial.
Don’t allow Shaitaan to make you doubt your good deed after you did it but don’t allow him to make you destroy it by harming others. – Mufti Menk
