Wudu Dua: This is the dua that you should recite after performing wudu (absolution).
There are two kinds of cleanliness and purification that we are familiar with. The first is the purification of the mind (mind), and the second is the purification of the outside (the body).
Cleanliness is essential that Sahih Muslim (book two hadith 1) says that “Cleanliness is half of faith.” Before performing prayer, which Insyaallah we do five times a day, we must maintain our cleanliness by performing a purification known as Wudu (ablution).
Performing Wudu (ablution) is the first essential step of Salah. Prophet Muhammad SAWW once explained that whoever performs Wudu well and recites dua after Wudu, eight doors of heaven will be opened for him, and he may enter through whichever one he wishes.Sunan al-Tirmidhi 55
Wudhu is one of the conditions for our Salah to be accepted. By doing ablution properly and perfectly, then the value of the sanctity of prayer facing Allah SWT becomes perfect and becomes one of the keys to the solemnity of prayer.
The perfection of one’s ablution will be perfect if one follows the pillars of ablution. The pillars of Wudu are reading the intention, washing the face, washing both hands up to the elbows, rubbing head, washing both feet up to the ankles, and in an orderly manner.
After Wudu, it is recommended to recite duas before and after so that our worship will be perfect.
Even though this dua is not obligatory, it is highly recommended as this is the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad SAW. Reading the prayer is noble worship with extraordinary wisdom. One of these features is that a Muslim who recites dua after Wudu will be facilitated in entering Allah’s paradise.
Dua Before Wudu
Before performing Wudu, we are encouraged to start by reciting Bismillah.
Narrated Hadrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab (RA). He heard the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) say,
“None of you makes wudu and completes the wudu, then says: I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah Alone, He has no partners; and I bear witness that Muhammad is His Messenger, except that all eight Gates of Paradise are opened for him, so he may enter by whichever he pleases.”Muslim, Abu Dawood, Tirmidhee, An Nisaae, and Ibn Maajah
Dua After Wudu
After finishing Wudu, we are advised to read a dua. This dua can be read after leaving the place of Wudu. The Dua after wudu is the shahada.
