Hajj and Umrah

How does one perform wudoo?

All praises be to Allaah, Lord and Sustainer of the worlds, and may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and upon his family and companions.

Start by saying Bismillaah (in the name of Allaah)

Wash your hands three times.

Rinse your mouth and nose three times.

Wash your face three times, from the hairline to the jawbone and chin, and from ear to ear. Men should also wash the hair of their beard because it is part of the face.

Wash your right arm up to just above the elbow three times, then wash your left arm in the same manner.

Then wipe your head and ears using fresh water, not the water left over from washing the arms. Wet the hands with fresh water then start the wiping from the hairline on the forehead moving them towards the back of your head upto the hairline at the back of the head then bringing them back to the place where you started.
Then put your index fingers in your ears and wipe the back of the ears with your thumbs.

Then wash your right foot up to just above the ankle three times, then wash your left foot in the same manner.

When you finish the wudoo say: “Ashhadu an laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasooluhu (I bear witness that there is no god except Allaah alone with no partner or associate, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah)”.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“There is no one among you who does wudoo' and does it properly and does it well, then he says, ‘Ashhadu an laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasooluhu,' but the gates of Paradise will be opened to him and he may enter through whichever of them he wishes.”

(Reported by Muslim).
