Hi! By the way, do you know what Niyyah is? If you don't understand it yet, don't worry! That's what I will explain now. I want you to understand that at the beginning of this discussion because that is the basic thing about Niyyah for wudu that has to be well understood.

If you want to know what Niyyah is, take a look at the literal definition of Niyyah below:

النِّيَّةُ لُغَةً : القَصْدُ

Niyyah according to the meaning of language is deliberate.

Hi! If you understand the literal definition of Niyyah above, you can conclude that the literal meaning of Niyyah is intentional. Thus, Niyyah also means will (الإِرَادَةُ), determination (العَزْمُ), direction (الجِهَةُ), displacement (التَّحَوُّلُ).

As for the meaning of Niyyah in Islam, one of them is as follows:

النِّيَّةُ شَرْعاً هِيَ اِنْعِقَادُ الْقَلْبِ عَلَى عَمَلِ الشَّيْءِ

Niyyah in Shariah (Islam) is determination to do something.

Is Niyyah Necessary for Wudu?

Now I will explain the answer to one important question about wudu that some Muslims often ask: is Niyyah necessary for wudu? I want you to understand it well now so you can give an answer to someone who asks about it one day.

By the way, before I explain the answer to the question, I will quote one hadith that relates specifically to it. Pay attention to the hadith below:

عَنْ عُمَرَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهم عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِنَّمَا الْأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّةِ وَلِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ لدُنْيَا يُصِيبُهَا أَوِ امْرَأَةٍ يَتَزَوَّجُهَا فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِ

From Umar radliyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam said, "Action depends on his intention (Niyyah), and a person only gets something according to his intention. Whoever emigrated to Allah and His Messenger, then his emigration was to Allah and His Messenger, and whoever emigrated for the sake of the world or because of the woman he wanted to marry, then his emigration was according to where he migrated."

The above hadith explains the urgency of Niyyah in Islam. The above hadith makes it clear that everything that a person does depends on Niyyah. If the Niyyah is good, then something that is done will be of good value. But if the Niyyah is bad, then something that is done will be of bad value. Niyyah will distinguish one thing from another.

Likewise, wudu. In Islam, wudu is movements for washing and wiping various parts of the body. Without Niyyah, these movements are ordinary movements.

So, is Niyyah necessary for wudu? Of course! Niyyah is very necessary for wudu. The reason is that if there is no Niyyah to remove small impurities, then the movements to wash and wipe some parts of the body with water that we do are normal movements.
