Pearl of Wisdom

'It is written on the door of Heaven: [The reward for] A loan is multiplied by eighteen, and a donation is by ten, and this is because the loan is not given to anyone other than the hand of a needy person, whereas the donation may fall into the hands of someone not needy.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 103, p. 138, no. 2

Wudhu / Ablution
Wudhu / Preparation

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)

How to Perform Wudhu

 

RECOMMENDED
Washing hands
2 times

 

RECOMMENDED
Gargling water in mouth
3 times
RECOMMENDED
Water into nostrils
3 times
OBLIGATORY
Splash water onto face and wipe in a downwards motion, covering the area from the hairline to the bottom of the chin.
OBLIGATORY
Drop water onto your right arm
With your left hand wipe the water over your right arm, ensuring that the water reaches all areas between the elbow and the fingertips
Always wipe in a downwards motion moving away from the elbow
OBLIGATORY
Drop water onto your left arm (now turn off the tap)
With your right hand wipe the water over your left arm, ensuring that the water reaches all areas between the elbow and the fingertips
Always wipe in a downwards motion moving away from the elbow
From this point onwards you cannot use any fresh water from the tap. Masah (wiping) must be performed using existing water that has been involved in your wudhu. This is why, in the instruction above, it is important to turn off the tap before wiping the left arm. Otherwise, if your turn off the tap after wiping the left arm you run the risk off picking up fresh water.

With your right hand, masah (wipe) the hair from the middle of the top of the head down to the hairline

With your right hand wipe your right foot in one motion between the toes and the ankle (either direction is acceptable). Make sure that your hand moves and your foot remains still. Again, you should not be using and fresh tap water, just the moisture that remains on your hand from previous wudhu actions.
