What should a person who doubts the validity of his/her ablution, or over performs it, do?

Answer

One who doubts the validity of his/her ablution while performing it should redo it until he/she is certain of having attained purity. But, if doubt was after having performed ablution, then he/she should not pay attention to that as doubt after the end of an act of worship does not count. This is of course in case doubt was within the reasonable limits since once it goes beyond that, it becomes a whispering of the Shaytaan (devil) which he/she should ignore as the ablution is valid.
