Can You Do Wudu at School? The Explanation You're Looking For

Can You Do Wudu at School?

Hi again! Studying at school is part of almost everyone's routine. There, there were many teachers and students. Some countries require them to go to school six days a week, but there are also countries that require five days a week. Likewise, Muslims. Muslim teachers teach science to their students. And Muslim students learn knowledge from their teachers. The question is: can you do wudu at school?

Whatever your reason for opening this article, I am very sure you are looking for an explanation about wudu at school. Don't worry! I will not disappoint you on this day. That's what I'm going to explain now. So, you just need to read this article to the end!

Can You Do Wudu at School?

can you do wudu at school, doing wudu, wudu, wudu at school,

Hi! First of all, I will explain the answer to one important question related to the main topic in this discussion: can you do wudu at school? I want you to understand that at the beginning of the discussion so that you can understand the subsequent discussions very well.

To be honest, a discussion about the legality of doing wudu at school is a discussion about places that can and cannot be used for wudu. Thus, this question becomes something interesting to discuss.

In short, I would like to say that there is no specific explanation about the places that we can and cannot use for wudu in some Islamic legal literature. This is very natural because the discussion about it is not a principled discussion. For this reason, the discussion about wudu focuses on the sunnah before wudu, during wudu, and after wudu, what must be done during wudu, and what damages wudu, and so on.

Now, what are the places you can use for wudu?

If we know that there is no specific explanation about places that can and cannot be used for wudu, then we can do wudu anywhere. We can do this at home, offices, schools, hotels, tourist attractions, and so on.

So, the answer to that question is, “Yes. You can do wudu at school.”

Benefits of Wudu at School

Hi! Are you still with me? Now I will explain the benefits of wudu at school. You have to understand it all well so that you can explain it all to Muslims who don't understand.

In general, some of the benefits of wudu at school are as follows:

  • One: teachers and students who do wudu at school will gain the general benefits of wudu.

By the way, do you know the most important benefit of wudu? Pay attention to the hadith below!

عَنْ عُثْمَانَ بْنِ عَفَّانَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ ، قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : مَنْ تَوَضَّأَ فَأَحْسَنَ الْوُضُوْءَ خَرَجَتْ خَطَايَاهُ مِنْ جَسَدِهِ ، حَتَّى تَخْرُجَ مِنْ تَحْتِ أَظْفَارِهِ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ

From Uthman bin Affan radliyallahu anhu, he said, "The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, "Whoever doing wudu perfectly, his sins come out of his body, even (his sins) come out from under his nails." This hadith was narrated by Muslim.

The hadith above explains that if a person does wudu perfectly, all his minor sins will be erased. So, if teachers and students do wudu at school (or anywhere else), then their minor sins will be forgiven.

  • Two: teachers and students who do wudu at school, before they start learning and teaching, will have better mental readiness.

There are two main reasons why teachers and students who do wudu at school have a better mentality:

  1. Their small sins were forgiven.
  2. They are purified from small hadas because the purpose of wudu is to remove them from the body of Muslims.

  • Three: teachers and students will receive blessed knowledge.

Maybe now you are wondering, why will teachers and students receive blessed knowledge if they do wudu at school before studying and teaching?

Actually, this third point is a hope or prayer for teachers and students. If they have done wudu perfectly, their minor sins have been forgiven and they will be pure from small hadas. Because of these two things, their chances of gaining blessed knowledge are very large.

Best Wudu Practices at School

Now I will explain the best practices for wudu at school. You should understand that now so that you have a good understanding of the main topic in this article. So, you should read the explanation below very well. 

In fact, there is no difference between the best practices for wudu at school and wudu in other places. All obligations must be carried out in wudu and the sunnah in wudu is highly recommended to be carried out.

In general, you can find an explanation of the best practices for wudu at school in the hadith below:

عَنْ حَمْرَانَ : أَنَّ عُثْمَانَ دَعَا بِوُضُوْءٍ فَغَسَلَ كَفَّيْهِ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ ثُمَّ تَمَضْمَضَ وَاسْتَنْشَقَ وَاسْتَنْثَرَ ثُمَّ غَسَلَ وَجْهَهُ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ ثُمَّ غَسَلَ يَدَهُ الْيُمْنَى إِلَى الْمِرْفَقِ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ ثُمَّ الْيُسْرَى مِثْلَ ذَلِكَ ، ثُمَّ مَسَحَ بِرَأْسِهِ ، ثُمَّ غَسَلَ رِجْلَهُ الْيُمْنَى إِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِ ثَلَاثَ مَرَّاتٍ ، ثُمَّ الْيُسْرَى مِثْلَ ذَلِكَ ، ثُمَّ قَالَ : رَأَيْتُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَوَضَّأَ نَحْوَ وُضُوْئِيْ هَذَا . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ 

From Hamran, Uthman did wudu. He washed his palms three times. Then he rinsed, put a little water into his nose and removed the water from his nose. Then he washed his face three times. Then he washed his right hand to the elbow three times. Then his left hand is like that (like his right hand). Then he rubbed his head. Then he washed his right foot until his ankles three times. Then his left leg was like that. then he said, "I have seen the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam do wudu like this wudu."" The hadith is narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

If you understand the hadith above, you can conclude that the obligations and sunnah in wudu at school are as follows:

  1. Wash both palms before wudu (sunnah in wudu).
  2. Gargle (sunnah in wudu).
  3. Sipping a little water or Istinsyaq (sunnah in wudu).
  4. Removing the water that has been inhaled or Istintsar (sunnah in wudu).
  5. Washing the face (obligatory in wudu).
  6. Say Niyyah when washing your face (obligatory in wudu).
  7. Washing both hands up to the elbows (obligatory in wudu).
  8. Wiping part of the head (obligatory in wudu).
  9. Washing both hands up to the elbows (obligatory in wudu).

Apart from the nine things above, there are several other sunnahs for best practice of wudu at school:

  1. Doing all sunnah and obligations (except saying Niyyah for wudu) in wudu three times.
  2. Say the dua after wudu once.

I have explained a lot about all the points above in the previous few paragraphs. I will not explain all that again in this article so that there are no repeated explanations.
