What is Wudu?Wudu is the Islamic procedure for washing parts of the body, a type of ritual purification, or ablution. Wudu involves washing the hands, mouth, nostrils, arms, head and feet with water and is an important part of ritual purity in Islam.
Steps Of Performing Wudu:1-Make niyyah (intention) to perform wudu: Niyyah is the intention made in your heart and not said out loud.
2-Wash your hands: Use your left hand to wash your right hand. Do this three times. After that, use your right hand to wash your left hand three times. Make sure to wash in between your fingers and all the way up to your wrists.
3-Take water into your mouth: Use your right hand to cup water into your mouth three times. Swish it around in your cheeks and the back of your throat. Do this thoroughly to get all the remaining food in your mouth out.
4-Inhale water into your nose: Use your right hand to cup water and inhale it into your nose three times. You can use your left hand to close one nostril and blow out if you need to. Snort sharply and abruptly without taking too much water into your nose and choking yourself. If you cannot inhale water into your nose, you can wet your fingers and put water on the lower part of your nostrils.
5-Wash your face: Wash your face three times by spreading your hands from your right ear to the left, and from the hairline to the chin.
6-Wash your lower arms from wrists to elbows, leaving no part dry: From your wrist to your elbow, wash your right arm with your left hand three times and then wash your left arm with your right hand three times.
7-Clean your head. This is known as’masah’: Using your wet hands, gently wipe the entire head once, from the forehead to the back of the head.
8-Wipe your ears inside and out: With the same water, use your finger to clean all the crevices of your ear. Use your thumb to clean behind your ears from the bottom upward. This is also done one time.
9-Wash both of your feet: Clean up to the the ankles and be sure water goes between the toes. Use your pinky finger and go through each toe to eliminate anything between. Start with your right foot and scrub each foot three times.
