Description of Wudu



  • Intention (or: niyah), which is an act of the heart and has nothing to do with the tongue. It denotes willing or planning to do something. Thus a person intends (in his heart) to perform wudu (ablution) in order to be permitted or able to perform acts that require wudu as a prior requirement, such as prayer,tawaf, and touching the Holy Qur'an. He may intend to remove the state of impurity without uttering such intent. That is because there is no Hadith evidencing that the Prophet, Sallalahu aleihi wa pronounced the intention in case of wudu, prayer or any of his acts of worship. Besides, Allah:jal: is Well-Aware of the content of the heart. The proof of the necessity of intention is the tradition narrated by Omar, radiyallahu anhu reading:
    “ The (integrity of) acts is based on intentions, and each person will be rewarded according to what he intends"
    (Agreed upon).

  • Saying at the beginning of wudu:" Bismillah "(i.e. by the name of Allah) on account of Abu Hurairah's radiyallahu anhu tradition which states that:“ No prayer is valid without wudu, and no wudu is valid without mentioning the Name of Allah”(Ahmad, Abu Daud, Ibn Majah etc.). The noble Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa also said:“ Every important matter will be imperfect (or lacking in blessing) if it is not started with the name of Allah”(Ahmad).
    red rose1
  • Washing the hands three times at the beginning of the wudu. Aws ibn Aws Al-Thaqafi radiyallahu anhu said:“ I saw Allah's Messenger Sallalahu aleihi wa ,wash his palms three times when he performed wudu'”(Ahmad&Nasai). The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa also said:“ If any of you wakes up, he should not dip his hand into a container unless he washes it three times, for he does not know where it was (what it was doing or touching) during the night”(Agreed upon).
    red rose1
  • Rinsing the mouth and nostrils three times.“ Ali, radiyallahu anhu, had water brought to him, upon which he rinsed his mouth and nostrils, then cleared his nose with his left hand. He did it three times, then said: Such is the ablution of Allah's Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa ”(Ahmad&Nasai). The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa also
    said:“ If a person performs wudu let him clear his nose, and if he cleans himself (with pebbles after urinating or defecating) let him do it at odd numbers”(Bukhari). A'ishah,radiyallahu anhu, reported the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa as saying:“ Rinsing mouth and nostrils are an essential part of wudu”(Darqutni). It is recommended to use the right hand when rinsing the mouth and nostrils (when putting water into them) and the left hand when rinsing the nostrils out (clearing them from dirt).
    This is based on the behaviour of Ali ibn Abi Talib radiyallahu anhu.“ When he entered his hand in the container and took a handful of water, then rinsed his mouth and nostrils, and cleared the latter with his left hand (He did this three times). After this he said: This is the wudu of Allah's Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa ”(Nasai).

  • Washing the face once, as a minimum. It is optimum to do it three times, by pouring water on the face. The face must be covered with water from the top, where hair grows, down to the bottom of the chin or beard, and from right to left earlobe. The Qur'an says which meaning is translated as:
    “ O you who believe! When you rise to offer the prayer, wash your faces and your hands
    up to the elbows, wipe (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to the ankles ”

    يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ إِذَا قُمۡتُمۡ إِلَى ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ فَٱغۡسِلُواْ وُجُوهَكُمۡ وَأَيۡدِيَكُمۡ إِلَى ٱلۡمَرَافِقِ وَٱمۡسَحُواْ بِرُءُوسِكُمۡ وَأَرۡجُلَڪُمۡ إِلَى ٱلۡكَعۡبَيۡنِ‌ۚ

    (Al-Maidah:6).
    red rose1
  • Washing the hands from the tips of fingers up to elbow including the elbow once as a minimum, but three times would be better. It is recommended to start with the right hand, then the left, and move the ring and watch (if any) so that water should reach under them. This is supported by the same verse mentioned in the former section. AbuHurairah, radiyallahu anhu washed his right hand up to the upperarm, then the left hand like that. He washed his right foot up to the leg, then the left foot like that. Then he said: I saw the Messenger of Allah Sallalahu aleihi wa perform ablution like this” (Muslim).
    red rose1
  • Wiping the head once with wet hands from front to back then the other way round. Abdullah ibn Zaid, radiyallahu anhu narrated that:“ Allah's Messenger Sallalahu aleihi wa wiped his head from the forehead to the back of his head and then back to the forehead with his wet hands” (Sunan narrators).
    In another description of the Prophet's Sallalahu aleihi wa wudu, it was mentioned that:“ He wiped his head (with water) only once”(Agreed upon).
    red rose1
  • Wiping the ears once (from the inside with index fingers and from the outside
    with thumbs). Ibn 'Abbas, radiyallahu anhu, in his description of the Prophet's Sallalahu aleihi wa wudu, said:“ He wiped his head and ears once”. In another narration, he said:“ He wiped his head and ears from the inside with the index fingers and from the outside with his thumbs”(Ahmad & Abu Daud).
    red rose1
  • Washing the feet once as a minimum. It is better, however, to wash them three times from the toes up to the ankles. The ankles should be included in washing. Ibn 'Amr, radiyallahu anhu, said:“ We were with Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa on a journey, and Al-'Asr prayer was over-due. We were performing ablution and passing wet hands over our feet (not washing them thoroughly), when he said to us in a loud voice: Woe to the heels because of the hell-fire”(Agreed upon).
    red rose1
  • Doing the above steps in order, and succession just like they have been mentioned in the Holy Qur'an which meaning is translated as:
    O you who believe! When you rise up for prayer, wash your faces, and hands up to the
    elbows, and lightly wipe your heads and (wash) your feet up to the ankles”

    يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ إِذَا قُمۡتُمۡ إِلَى ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ فَٱغۡسِلُواْ وُجُوهَكُمۡ وَأَيۡدِيَكُمۡ إِلَى ٱلۡمَرَافِقِ وَٱمۡسَحُواْ بِرُءُوسِكُمۡ وَأَرۡجُلَڪُمۡ إِلَى ٱلۡكَعۡبَيۡنِ‌ۚ

    (Al-Maidah:6).
    Succession here means that one should not delay the washing of a part of the body until
    the previous one has become dry. Omar, radiyallahu anhu narrated that: “The Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa saw a man praying, but a portion of his foot as large as a dirham was not touched with water. Therefore, the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa ordered him to repeat his wudu and prayer”.
