Hadith About the Benefits of Dua After Wudu

benefits of dua after wudu, hadith about benefits of dua after wudu, dua after wudu, wudu,

First of all, I will explain the hadith about the benefits of dua after wudu. I want you to understand that first because that's what we're talking about today.

There are many hadiths about the benefits of dua after wudu. Of course, I'm not going to quote everything in this article. In this article, I will only quote one hadith.

As for one hadith about dua after wudu, what I mean is as follows:

عَنْ عُمَرَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :مَا مِنْكُمْ مِنْ أَحَدٍ  يَتَوَضَّأُ فَيُسْبِغُ الْوُضُوْءَ ثُمَّ يَقُوْلُ : أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ , إِلَّا فُتِحَتْ لَهُ أَبْوَابُ الْجَنَّةِ الثَّمَانِيَّةِ يَدْخُلُ مِنْ أَيِّهَا شَاءَ . أَخْرَجَهُ مُسْلِمٌ وَالتِّرْمِذِيُّ وَزَادَ : اَللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ التَّوَّابِيْنَ وَاجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِيْنَ 

From Umar radliyallahu anhu, he said, "The Messenger of Allah alaihi wa sallam said, "It is not one of you who performs wudu then perfects it, then says, "I testify that there is no god but Allah who has no partner, and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger, "except the eight doors of Heaven have been opened for him. He can enter any door he wants." The hadith is narrated by Muslim and at-Tirmidhi. He (at-Tirmidhi) added another editor, "O Allah, make me among those who repent and make me including those who are cleansed."

That hadith about the benefits of dua after wudu. In the hadith it is explained that if a Muslim who has performed wudu perfectly and recites dua after wudu as described in the hadith, then he will get enormous benefits (I will explain that in a moment).

By the way, do you know what it means to perform wudu perfectly? You have to understand that because that is one of the conditions for you to get the benefits of dua after wudu. In the above hadith it is explained: فَيُسْبِغُ الْوُضُوْءَ (then he completes the wudu).

In short, I would like to say that what is meant by perfecting wudu is washing and wiping the parts of the body that must be washed and rubbed in wudu perfectly. For example, if you wash your face, then all of your face should be washed with the water you use. If you wash both hands (from the elbows to the tips of the fingers), then there should not be any skin on those parts that are not exposed to water. That is what is meant by perfecting wudu.

The parts of the body that must be washed and rubbed in wudu are as follows:

  • Washing face.
  • Washing both hands (starting from the elbows to the tips of the fingers).
  • Wiping part of the head.
  • Wipe both ears.
  • Washing both feet (starting from the ankles to the tips of the toes).

The Benefits of Dua After Wudu

Now I will explain the benefits of dua after wudu which is the main topic in this discussion. This is very important. So, I really hope you read the explanation below so you don't have any more questions in your mind—but if you still have questions, feel free to write them down in the comments!

In short, there are three main benefits that we can conclude if we understand the hadith about dua after wudu that I have quoted in the previous paragraphs:

  • Dua after wudu is one of the sunnahs that is highly recommended in Islam. So, if you recite that after wudu, you will get rewarded because you have done one of the sunnahs in Islam.

One important thing that I want to explain here, that reading dua after wudu is sunnah. The meaning is that Muslims are highly recommended to read the dua after wudu because they will get a reward. But if they don't do that, they are innocent. That's sunnah.

  • If a Muslim recites the dua after wudu as explained in the hadith above, he will get Paradise as his reward.
  • If Muslims recite the dua after wudu as I have explained in the hadith above, then the eight gates of Heaven will be opened for them to enter. Dua can enter heaven through any door he wants.

Short Dua After Wudu You Can Say

Now I'm going to explain the last thing in this discussion: short dua after wudu you can say. I will explain it as a complement to this discussion. It would be funny if I explained the benefits of dua after wudu, but I didn't explain the dua after wudu.

If you understand the hadiths about the benefits of dua after wudu in the previous few paragraphs, you will find a short dua after wudu that you can say as follows:

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ , اَللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ التَّوَّابِيْنَ وَاجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِيْنَ 

I testify that there is no god but Allah who has no partner, and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger. O Allah, make me among those who repent and make me including those who are cleansed.
