Guide to Wudu

Posted on: Wednesday, July 22, 2009

The basic form of purification for prayer is called Wudu (ablution) which is encouraged to begin with uttering of ‘Bismillah’ (In the name of Allah) followed by Niyat (intention) to purify yourself in the heart.

Step 1: While making the intention for Wudu, pour water on your both palms and wash those up to the wrist and run finger through the fingers, by making sure that no part of hand remains dry.

Step 2: Rinse mouth thoroughly, then inhale water into the nose with your right hand and clean it with your left hand.

Step 3: Wash the face completely, making sure no part of the face remains dry. In length wash from the above part of the forehead to the below of the chin. And in width wash your face from the root of ear to the root of other ears.

Step 4: Wash your right hand including the elbow, again making sure no part of the hand remains dry. Then the same is done with the left hand.

Step 5: Wipe both your wet hands over your head, from front (forehead) to the back (nape of the neck) and from back to the front.

Step 6: Wipe inside of your both ears with your index finger and outside of both ears with your thumb finger.

Step 7: First wash your right foot thoroughly including the ankles and run finger through the fingers of foot with little finger of left hand from above to below, making sure that no part of the foot including the ankles is left dry. Repeat the same with the left foot.

*All actions of Wudu (exceot for wiping of the head and the ears) may be performed 1,2 or 3 times*

Dua after Wudu: Ashhadu ‘an la ‘ilaha ‘illallahu wahdahi la shareeka lahu, wa ‘ashhadu ‘annu Muhammadan abduhu wa rasooluhu. Allahummaj alni minat-tawwabeena waj’alni minal-mutatahhireen. (I testify that there is no diety worthy of worship except Allah alone and that Muhammad S.A.S is his slave and his Messenger. O Allah! Make me among those who repent and make me among those who keep themselves pure)

What nullifies Wudu: 1. Passing wind, urine, excrement

2.Deep sleep

3. Touching private parts without any cover

4. Eating camel’s meat

5. Loss of ones senses due to fainting or madness

All praises are due on Allah, of whom we are just humble servants.

Can you please check the order of Step 5 & Step 6.

Although I’ve learned that cleaning the ears is Sunnah, so the order shouldn’t matter, but Mussah(Cleaning of the head) is compulsary.

Do authenticate this procedure, I’ll do so myself.

The topic: What Nullifies Ablution (Wudu)?
My knowledge of Islam agrees with all points except point number 4: Eating Camel’s Meat.

More investigation is required, as it stands there’s much doubt over this matter that it is better to perform wudhu(rinsing of teeth) after eating meat.

bless you for this sharing 🙂
