Benefits of Wudhu
This time I will explain the Benefit of Wudhu.
Wudhu is an integral part of Shalat. Shalat will not be valid if not accompanied with Wudhu.
(O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Shalat (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to ankles) [Surah Maidah:6]
This will increase your love for Allaah, and strengthen your Imaan….and improve your relationship with Him. It will make you more conscious of Him when you stand in front of Him in prayer and give you more Khushoo.
And whenever you do wudhu, think of the People who will have bright hands and faces on the Day of Resurrection and know that if you try to do your wudhu properly, doing it sincerely for the sake of Allaah, then He will make you among those.
The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said: “(On the Day of Resurrection) You will have distinctive marks “Al-Ghurr-ul- Muhajjalun” which nobody among the peoples (except you) will have; you would come to me (at the Cistern of al-Kauthar) with blazing forehead and bright hands and feet on account of the traces of ablution.” (Muslim)
Try and maintain your wudhu at all times as this is a sign of a believer. The Prophet (sal Allaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said: “Only the believer will remain with his ablution (sustaining it at all times).” (Saheeh al-Jamee) And even if you have difficulty in doing wudhu, like cold weather, or any other situation that makes wudhu difficult, still try your best to maintain it, since there is tremendous reward.
