Ramadan Tip: Living By Islam #3 – Sunnah ways of making Wudu

Wudu (ablution) is an essential ritual for getting ready for salah. In chapter Ma’ida, Muslims have been ordered to perform Wudu to achieve Tahara (purity). We need to make wudu at least five times a day, so by just making sure of following some sunnahs, we can achieve so much more.

Narrated by Abu Huraira رضي الله عنه :

Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,
“When the people of my Ummah would be called on the Day of Judgement, their foreheads, hands and feet would be white (shining)because of making wudu (ablution). So whoever from you wishes, can increase (this) whiteness (shine)[by making more ablutions]” [1]

This Hadith shows how beneficial wudu can be for us on the Day of Judgement. Here are some sunnahs of making Wudu.

1. Saying “Bismillah” before starting Wudu.

2. Use “Miswak” to clean the teeth.

Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“If I did not fear hardship for my Ummah, I would have ordered them to use Miswak for every Wudu.”[2]

Narrated by Ibn Umar رضي الله عنه :

“Make a regular practise of Miswak, for verily, it is healthy for your mouth and is a pleasure for the Creator.” [3]

3. Gurgling or rinsing the mouth is a sunnah of wudu.

4. Drawing in water in the nose and then cleaning it, is also a sunnah.

Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,
“When drawing in water in the nose (for wudu), try to reach the furthest point, except when you are fasting.” [4] 5. If you have been blessed with a beard, try to wet it and run fingers through it. Narrated by Yasir bin Ammar رضي الله عنه : “Why shouldn’t I run my fingers through my beard, when I have witnessed Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم running his fingers through his beard?” [5]

5. Washing every part one time is Fardh, but three times is Sunnah.

6. Recite Masnoon Dua:

اشهد ان لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريك له و اشهد ان محمدا عبده و رسوله

(I bear witness that there is no god except Allah alone with no partner or associate, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah)

Our Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

“There is no one among you who does wudu and does it properly and does it well, then he says,

اشهد ان لا اله الا الله وحده لا شريك له و اشهد ان محمدا عبده و رسوله

but the gates of Paradise will be opened to him and he may enter through whichever of them he wishes.” (Narrated by Muslim)

Narration by al-Tirmidhi adds:
اللهم جعلنى من التوابين واجعلنى من ا لمتطهرين
“(O Allah, make me one of those who repent and make me one of those who purify themselves).”
