Offering prayer with a wuḍū' done before its time

Q: What is your opinion with respect to performing wuḍū’ before the arrival of the time of prayers? In one of your answers you have stated that if wuḍū’ is done at a time near to the beginning time of prayer, the prayer performed therewith is valid. So how far before the beginning time of prayer have you meant?
A: The criterion is that common people consider it near to the arrival of the time of prayer, and there is no objection to the wuḍū’ performed — for the prayer — within that period.
