  15. Q: I read in a Hadith that the wudhu performed after another wudhu earns one immense reward. Is it permissible after one wudhu to make another wudhu based on this Hadith?

  18. Q: If while traveling, I performed a Salaah without shortening it, is the Salaah valid? Am I in any way sinful? For example, I performed four rakaats for Isha instead of two rakaats, while traveling. A: While on safar, the four rakaats fardh Salaah has been changed to two rakaats. Hence if a musaafir performs Salaah, it is compulsory upon him to perform two rakaats.
