1. Doubt about the number of rak’ats in a two rak’at prayer like Fajr, or qasr of Zuhr, Asr and ‘Isha.
2. Doubt about the number of rak’ats in a three rak’at prayer i.e. Maghrib.
3. Doubt during a four rak’at prayer whether it was the first, the second or the third rak’at.
4. Doubt during a four rak’at prayer before finishing the dhikr of the second sajdah whether it was the second or the third rak’at.
5. Doubt during a four rak’at prayer whether it was the second, the fifth or a higher rak’at.
6. Doubt during a four rak’at prayer whether it was the third, the sixth or a higher rak’at.
7. Doubt during a four rak’at prayer whether it was the fourth, the sixth or a higher rak’at.
8. To forget in a four rak’at prayer the number of rak’ats already prayed.
