SECOND GIFT OF RAMZAN

ETIQUETTE OF RITUAL ABLUTION (WUZU)


At performing the ritual ablution, it is necessary to sit down, face the qiblah direction, and put the bowl (containing the water of ablution) to the right side. Upon looking at the water, it is recommended to say the following:

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذى جَعَلَ الْمآءَ طَهُورا وَلَمْ يَجْعَلْهُ نَجِسا

Before putting the hand in the bowl, it is recommended to wash it. At putting it there, it is recommended to say the following:

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ وَبِاللّٰهِ اَللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنى مِنَ التَّوّابينَ وَاجْعَلْنى مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرينَ .

You may then rinse out your mouth with three handfuls of water three times and say the following:

اَللّهُمَّ لَقِّنى حُجَّتى يَوْمَ اَلْقاكَ وَاَطْلِقْ لِسانى بِذِكْراكَ

You may then inhale water (from the nose) three times and say the following:

اَللّهُمَّ لا تُحَرِّمْ عَلَىَّ ريحَ الْجَنَّةِ وَاجْعَلْنى مِمَّنْ يَشَمُّ ريحَها وَرَوْحَها وَطيبَها

You may then begin with washing the face, saying the following:

اَللّهُمَّ بَيِّضْ وَجْهى يَوْمَ تَسْوَدُّ فيهِ الْوُجُوهُ وَلا تُسَوِّدْ وَجْهى يَوْمَ تَبْيَضُّ فيهِ الْوُجُوهُ

You may then take a handful of water to wash your right hand, saying the following:

اَللّهُمَّ اَعْطِنى كِتابى بِيَمينى وَالْخُلْدَ فِى الْجِنانِ بِيَسارى وَحاسِبْنى حِسابا يَسيرا

You may then wash your left hand and say the following:

اَللّهُمَّ لا تُعْطِنى كِتابى بِشِمالى وَلا مِنْ وَرآءِ ظَهْرى وَلا تَجْعَلْها مَغْلُولَةً اِلى عُنُقى وَاَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ مُقَطَّعاتِ النّيرانِ

You may then rub the forepart of your head with your wetted forefingers of your right hand and say the following:

اَللّهُمَّ غَشِّنى رَحْمَتَكَ وَبَرَكاتِكَ .

You may then rub your feet, saying the following:

اَللّهُمَّ ثَبِّتْنى عَلَى الصِّراطِ يَوْمَ تَزِلُّ فيهِ الاَقْدامُ وَاجْعَلْ سَعْيى فيما يُرْضيكَ عنّى يا ذَاالْجَلالِ وَالاِكْرامِ

Upon accomplishment of the ritual ablution, you may say the following:

اَللّهُمَّ اِنّى اَسْئَلُكَ تَمامَ الْوُضُوءِ وَتَمامَ الصَّلوةِ وَتَمامَ رِضْوانِكَ وَالْجَنَّةَ .

You may also say the following:

اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ

Upon accomplishment too, you may recite Surah al-Qadr (No. 97) three times and impart a sweet smell to yourself.
