The Excellence of Wudu’

Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “When a Muslim or a believer washes his face (in the course of Wudu’), every sin he has committed with his eyes is washed away from his face along with water, or with the last drop of water; when he washes his hands, every sin they wrought is erased from his hands with the water, or with the last drop of water; and when he washes his feet, every sin towards which his feet walked is washed away with water, or with the last drop of water, with the result that he comes out cleansed of all sins.”

[Sahih Muslim]

Commentary:

This Hadith mentions the excellence of Wudu’. A person who performs Wudu’ five times daily would be free from sins. Thus, Wudu’ is a means of both outward and inward cleanliness.

And Allah Knows Best!
