How to perform Wudu Ablution


There are many ahadeeth, i just referred to a few of them which has the complete Wudu in it inshaAllah.

1) Saying Bismillah before Wudoo

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “There is no wudu for him who does not mention Allah’s name upon it.” [Sunan Abu Dawood, Book of Purification, Chapter 48 ‘Saying Bismillah upon Wudoo, Hadeeth# 101]

It was narrated that Anas said: “Some of the companions of the prophet (s.a.w) were looking (for water) for Wudu. Rasool Allah (s.a.w) said: “Do any of you have water?”. He put his hands in the water and said: ‘Peform Wudu in the name of Allah (Bismillah).” I saw the water coming out from between his fingers until they had all performed Wudu” Thbit said: “I said to Anas: ‘How many did you see? He said: ‘About seventy.” [Sunan An-Nasaee, Book of purification, Chapter 62 Saying Bismillah when performing Wudu, hadeeth# 78]

2) Washing the hands, rinsing the mouth, putting water into the nose and blowing it out, washing the face, washing the arms upto the elbows, passing wet hands over the head and washing the feet upto the Ankles

Humran, the freed slave of ‘Uthman, said:
Uthman b. ‘Affan called for ablution water and this is how he performed the ablution. He washed his hands thrice. He then rinsed his mouth and cleaned his nose with water (three times). He then washed his face three times, then washed his right arm up to the elbow three times, then washed his left arm like that, then wiped his head; then washed his right foot up to the ankle three times, then washed his left foot like that, and then said: I saw the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) perform ablution like this ablution of mine. Then the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: He who performs ablution like this ablution of mine and then stood up (for prayer) and offered two rak’ahs of prayer without allowing his thoughts to be distracted, all his previous sins are expiated. Ibn Shihab said: Our scholars remarked: This is the most complete of the ablutions performed for prayer.
