Performing Wudu and Its Virtues

Cleanliness (Taharah) is an important precondition of Islamic worship.
Wudu is an essential part of Cleanliness.

Salah(prayer) is not valid without Wudu' or Tayammum(dry Ablution).
Allah says in the Qur'an :

"Surely Allah loves those who turn to Him and those who care for cleanliness" (Al-Baqarah (2):22).

1. First make Niyyah (Intention) that you are making Wudu' for Salah and begin saying. "Bismillah.." (In the name of Allah, the most merciful and the most kind). Wash both hands up to the wrist three times, making sure that water has reached between the fingers.

2. Put a handful of water into your mouth and rinse it thoroughly three times

3, 4 Sniff water into your nostrils three times to clean them and then wash the tip of the nose.

5,6 Wash your face three times from right ear to left ear and from forehead to throat.

7. Wash your right arm and then your left arm thoroughly from wrist up to elbow three times.

8 a & b) Move the wet palms over the head from the top of forehead to the back of the head.

9) Pass the wet tips of index fingers into the grooves and holes of both ears and also pass the wet thumbs behind the ears

10. Finally, wash both feet to the ankles starting from the right, making sure that water has reached between the toes and all other parts of the feet.


The importance and virtues of performing the wudu (ablution),
how to do it and what to recite.
Hope to inspire and remind us all
that it is not just a repetitive task but
done correctly with sincere devotion and care,
can reap great benefits!

May Allah guide us all to the straight path - Ameen!
