A Supplication to be said After Performing the Wudoo (ablution)

November 12, 2011

Imaam Muslim -rahimahullaah- reported in his ‘Saheeh’ [The Book of Purification]: (no.234): “Muhammad ibn Haatim ibn Maymoon narrated to me: `Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Mahdee narrated to us: Mu`aawiyah ibn Saalih narrated to us: from Rabee`ah -meaning Ibn Yazeed: from Aboo Idrees al- Khawlaanee: from `Uqbah ibn `Aamir; And Aboo `Uthmaan narrated to me: from Jubayr ibn Nufayr: from `Uqbah ibn `Aamir, who said: ‘We were tending camels, and my turn came, so I brought them back in the evening. So then I found Allaah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) standing, speaking to the people, and I caught from what he was saying:

<<There is not one of you who performs the wudoo·, and he performs the wudoo· well, and then he stands and prays two rak`ahs, turning his full attention to them with his heart and his face, except that Paradise will be binding for him>>.’

He said: So I said: ‘How fine this is!’ So then someone in front of me said: “That which came before it was even finer.” So I looked, and it was `Umar. He said: “I saw that you came just now. So he had (already) said:

<<There is not one of you who performs the wudoo·, and he performs the wudoo· completely -or: and he performs it fully, then he says:

dua-after-wudhoo-1(Ashhadu an laa ilaaha illallaah, wa anna Muhammadan `abduhu wa Rasooluh)
‘I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His Slave and His Messenger’,
except that the eight gates of Paradise are opened for him: he may enter through whichever of them he wishes >>.”

And Aboo Bakr ibn Abee Shaybah narrated it to us: Zayd ibn al-Hubaab narrated to us: Mu`aawiyah ibn Saalih narrated to us: from Rabee`ah ibn Yazeed: from Aboo Idrees al-Khawlaanee and Aboo `Uthmaan: from Jubayr ibn Nufayr ibn Maalik al-Hadramee: from `Uqbah ibn `Aamir al-Juhanee: that Allaah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) said.., and he mentioned its like, except that he said:

<<Whoever performs the wudoo·, and says:

dua-after-wudhoo-2(Ashhadu an laa ilaaha illallaah, wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan `abduhu wa Rasooluh)
<<‘I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, with no partner; and I testify that Muhammad is His Slave and His Messenger’>>.”

Imaam at-Tirmidhee -rahimahullaah-reported in his ‘Sunan’ [The Book of Purification from Allaah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him): Chapter (41): What should be said after the wudoo·] (no.55): “Ja`far ibn Muhammad ibn `Imraan ath-Tha`labee, al-Koofee, narrated to us, saying: Zayd ibn Hubaab narrated to us: from Mu`aawiyah ibn Saalih: from Rabee`ah ibn Yazeed ad-Dimashqee: from Aboo Yazeed al-Khawlaanee and Aboo `Uthmaan: from `Umar ibn al-Khattaab, who said: Allaah’s Messenger (Peace be upon him) said:

<<Whoever performs the wudoo·, and he performs the wudoo· well, then he says:

dua-after-wudhoo-3(Ashhadu an laa ilaaha illallaah, wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan `abduhu wa Rasooluh. Allaahummaj `alnee minat-Tawwaabeena waj`alnee minal- Mutatahhireen)
<< ‘I testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, with no partner; and I testify that Muhammad is His Slave and His Messenger’ O Allaah! Make me from those who constantly repent, and make me from those who purify themselves’>>.”

[Declared ‘Saheeh’ by Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah: ‘Saheehut-Tirmidhee’ (no. 48).]
