Pearl of Wisdom
said to a man who wished to die, 'Is there a kinship between you and Allah as a result of which He will be partial to you in it [i.e. death]?' He said, 'No.' The Imam then asked, 'So, do you have good deeds that you have done that exceed your bad deeds?' He said, 'No.' The Imam said, 'Therefore, you are wishing for the ultimate ruin!'
Imam Musa ibn Jafar al-Kadhim [as]
Kashf al-Ghamma, v. 3, p. 42

Wudhu - is the specific method of washing yourself before you pray. It was taught by our Holy Prophet Muhammad (saaw), after he came back from Mi’raj. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an, “O you who believe! When you get ready for Salaat, wash your faces, wash your hands up to (and including) the elbows, and wipe (a part of) your heads, and (a part of ) your feet to the ankles.” (5:6)
Wudhu is not only needed for prayers, but also for:
• Certain acts during Hajj and Umra (pilgrimage to Mecca)
• Touching the writing of the Holy Qur’an
• Touching the names of Allah (swt)
• Touching the names of the Ma’sumeen (as)
