VIRTUES OF WUDHU

Hadhrat Uthman bin ‘Affan (Radiallahu anhu) narrates that Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever performs a perfect Wudhu, the sins are washed off from his body to such an extent they even come out from beneath his nails.

Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu anhu) says, ‘I heard Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) say-ing, “The believer will wear the ornaments of Jannah on the limbs of Wudhu.”

Umar bin Khattab (RA) narrates that Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “There is no one of you who performs a perfect Wudhu, then he says Ash Hadu al laa Ilaaha

Illal lahu Wahdahu laa Shareeka lahu wa Ash Hadu anna Muhammadan ‘Abduhu wa Rasooluhu except that the eight doors of Jannah are opened up for him and he may enter through any door he desires.” (Muslim)

What a great Key! “Wudhu is the key to salaah and salaah is the key to Jannah.”

Wudhu— a weapon – “Wudhu is the weapon of a Mu’min”

Nabi Sallallahu alaihi wasallam made Du’a: ”O Allah grant me a perfect wudhu, a perfect salaah and Your complete Pleasure”
