Niyyah for Wudu for Muslim Women

Wudu is one of worship for all Muslims, both Muslim men and Muslim women. If they do wudu, they have to do it perfectly. What is meant by performing wudu perfectly is carrying out all the obligations in wudu. One of them said Niyyah for wudu. For this reason, in this article, I will explain the Niyyah for wudu for Muslim women.

Whatever your reason for opening this article, I am sure you are looking for an explanation about Niyyah for wudu for Muslim women. Trust me! I will not let you down today. That's what I will explain now. So, you just need to read this article to the end!

When Should Muslim Women Perform Wudu?

wudu, niyyah for wudu, niyyah for wudu for muslim women, wudu for muslim women,

Hi! First of all, I will explain the answer to one important basic question that some Muslim women may not understand well (maybe you are one of them): when should Muslim women perform wudu? The question looks very simple. But, is it true that the answer is also very simple?!

In general, all Muslims, including Muslim women in the context of this discussion, must perform wudu if they have small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and are going to perform rituals that require them to have a wudu or be in a state of purity during their performance. That is very true. But it is a general answer. Sometimes, you have to give a detailed answer to a question so that the person asking you about it gets a complete answer.

So, when should Muslim women perform wudu?

There are four conditions that require Muslim women to perform wudu:

  • If a Muslim woman has small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and she will perform namaz. It's an obligation.
  • If a Muslim woman has small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and she will perform Tawaf. It's an obligation.
  • If a Muslim woman has small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and she will hold the Quran. It's an obligation.
  • If a Muslim woman has small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and she wants to always have wudu even though she will not perform acts of worship that require them to have wudu while doing it. They do that because they want to get the benefits if they always have wudu or are in a pure condition. So, this is a suggestion.

The Virtues of Wudu for Muslim Women

Hi! Are you still with me? Now I will explain the virtues of wudu for Muslim women. You have to understand all of that because those are all important things about wudu that some Muslims don't understand very well.

There are many virtues of wudu for Muslim women. Of course, I'm not going to explain it all today. Now I will only describe the three virtues of wudu for them:

  • Wudu will be one of the signs for Muslim women that they are the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad on the Day of Judgment.

You can find this explanation in the hadith below:

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : سَمِعْتُ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُوْلُ : إِنَّ أُمَّتِيْ يَأْتُوْنَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ غُرَّا مُحَجَّلِيْنَ مِنْ أَثَرِ الْوُضُوْءِ ، فَمَنْ اِسْتَطَاعَ مِنْكُمْ أَنْ يُطِيْلَ غُرَّتَهُ فَلْيَفْعَلْ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ 

From Abu Hurairah radliyallahu anhu, he said, “I have heard the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam say, “Indeed, my people on the Day of Judgment will come with white light from the wudu marks. Whoever of you is able to extend his white light, then let him do that.” The hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

  • Allah loves those who always purify themselves. In the context of this discussion, people who always have wudu. In other words, if a Muslim woman does that, it will be because Allah loves her.

You can find this explanation in the verses of the Quran below:

وَيَسْـَٔلُوْنَكَ عَنِ الْمَحِيْضِ ۗ قُلْ هُوَ اَذًىۙ فَاعْتَزِلُوا النِّسَاۤءَ فِى الْمَحِيْضِۙ وَلَا تَقْرَبُوْهُنَّ حَتّٰى يَطْهُرْنَ ۚ فَاِذَا تَطَهَّرْنَ فَأْتُوْهُنَّ مِنْ حَيْثُ اَمَرَكُمُ اللّٰهُ ۗ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ يُحِبُّ التَّوَّابِيْنَ وَيُحِبُّ الْمُتَطَهِّرِيْنَ

And they ask you about menstruation. Say, "It is harmful, so keep away from wives during menstruation. And do not approach them until they are pure. And when they have purified themselves, then come to them from where Allah has ordained for you. Indeed, Allah loves those who are constantly repentant and loves those who purify themselves." (Al-Baqarah: 222).

  • Wudu can wash away small sins. In other words, all minor sins of Muslim women will be erased if they perform wudu.

You can find this explanation in the hadith below:

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

From Uthman bin Affan radliyallahu anhu, he said, "The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, "Whoever performs wudu perfectly, his small sins will come out of his body (erased), in fact they all come out from under his nails. -her nails.” This hadith was narrated by Muslim.

When Is Wudu Not Beneficial for Muslim Women?

If you think that wudu is always beneficial for Muslim women, then you are wrong! In some conditions, wudu is not beneficial for them. So, when is wudu not beneficial for Muslim women?

Please note! That the benefit of wudu that I mean here is its function to remove small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ). So, this is not at all related to the benefits of wudu for Muslim women as I have explained in the previous paragraphs.

There are two conditions where wudu will be beneficial for Muslim women to remove small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ). If they perform wudu, the small hadas on their body will not disappear under these two conditions. The two conditions I mean are as follows:

  • When a Muslim woman is menstruating.
  • When a Muslim woman is in the period of istihadlah (the period after giving birth to a child until her blood runs out).

Maybe now you are wondering, why is wudu not beneficial for Muslim women who are menstruating and are in the period of istihadlah? The answer is very simple, because in those two conditions they have a big hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَكْبَرُ). So, wudu performed when having big hadas cannot remove small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ).

Niyyah for Wudu for Muslim Women

Now I will explain the main topic in this discussion. So, you have to read the explanation very well.

Actually, there is no difference between Niyyah for Wudu for Muslim women and Muslim men. In the Niyyah for wudu, you must intend to remove small hadas as an obligation and worship to Allah. One example is below:

نَوَيْتُ الْوُضُوْءَ لِرَفْعِ الْحَدَثِ الْأَصْغَرِ فَرْضًا لِلَّهِ تَعَالَى

I intend to perform wudu to remove minor hadas, as an obligation, because of Allah Taala
