Finding dirt on one's eyes after performing salaah

Q: When I was doing wudhu for fajr, I checked my eyes for any dirt in the sides, and found some in my left eye, so I cleaned it and rubbed both eyes. But after I finished fajr prayer, I found some dirt besides the right eye. I had not seen this dirt during wudhu. The dirt was dry and 3mm thick. Will my Salaah and wudhu be valid?

A: If you had rubbed your eyes while making wudhu then your wudhu and namaaz are valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
