The First important thing about “can you say the 99 names of Allah without wudu?” what I will explain now is “what are the 99 names of Allah?”. I want you to understand that first before you read more explanations in this article because it is a basic question about the 99 names of Allah that must be well understood.

The 99 names of Allah or what we know better as Asma ul Husna (الأَسْمَاءُ الحُسْنَى) are the names of Allah. Actually, Allah has more than 99 good names. But these 99 names are more popular among Muslims.

We can find an explanation that Allah has 99 good names or Asma ul Husna (الأَسْمَاءُ الحُسْنَى) in the Quran and hadith below:

قُلِ ادْعُوا اللّٰهَ اَوِ ادْعُوا الرَّحْمٰنَۗ اَيًّا مَّا تَدْعُوْا فَلَهُ الْاَسْمَاۤءُ الْحُسْنٰىۚ وَلَا تَجْهَرْ بِصَلَاتِكَ وَلَا تُخَافِتْ بِهَا وَابْتَغِ بَيْنَ ذٰلِكَ سَبِيْلًا

Say, “Call upon Allah or call upon the Most Merciful. Whichever [name] you call – to Him belong the best names.” And do not recite [too] loudly in your prayer or [too] quietly but seek between that an [intermediate] way. (Al-Isra’ [17]: 110).

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ , عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ , قَالَ : لِلَّهِ تِسْعَةٌ وَتِسْعُوْنَ اسْمًا , مَنْ حَفِظَهَا دَخَلَ الجَنَّةَ , وَإِنَّ اللهَ وِتْرٌ يُحِبُّ الْوِتْرَ

From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, from the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He (Prophet Muhammad) said, “Allah has ninety-nine names, whoever memorizes them will enter Paradise. And verily Allah is odd, loves the odd.”

The second important thing about “can you say the 99 names of Allah without wudu?” what I will explain now is “are the 99 names of Allah part of the Quran and hadith?”. I want you to understand that now because it is one of the important questions about the 99 names of Allah that must be well understood.

In short, if you ask me, “Are the 99 names of Allah part of the Quran and hadith?”, the answer is “Yes. The 99 names of Allah are part of the Quran and hadith.”

In general, we can find an explanation that the 99 names of Allah are part of the Quran in surah al-Hasyr [59] verses 22-24 and the hadith about Asma ul Husna (الأَسْمَاءُ الحُسْنَى), insha Allah. I will explain that in the next few articles.

When Should You Perform Wudu?

The third important thing about “can you say the 99 names of Allah without wudu?” what I will explain now is “when should you perform wudu?”. I want you to understand that now because it is one of the important questions about wudu that must be well understood. This question is also closely related to this discussion.

In general, if you read some of the Islamic legal literature on wudu, you will find an explanation that you should perform wudu when:

  1. When the Muslims have a small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and will touch the Quran.
  2. When the Muslims have a small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and will going to pray (salat).
  3. When the Muslims have a small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and will perform Tawaf.

Prayer (salat), Tawaf, and touching the Quran are three things that Muslims are allowed to do if they have wudu or are in a holy condition. One example, we can find an explanation that Muslims who have small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) must perform wudu first if they are going to pray. We can find this explanation in the Quran and hadith below:

يٰٓاَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْٓا اِذَا قُمْتُمْ اِلَى الصَّلٰوةِ فَاغْسِلُوْا وُجُوْهَكُمْ وَاَيْدِيَكُمْ اِلَى الْمَرَافِقِ وَامْسَحُوْا بِرُءُوْسِكُمْ وَاَرْجُلَكُمْ اِلَى الْكَعْبَيْنِۗ وَاِنْ كُنْتُمْ جُنُبًا فَاطَّهَّرُوْاۗ وَاِنْ كُنْتُمْ مَّرْضٰٓى اَوْ عَلٰى سَفَرٍ اَوْ جَاۤءَ اَحَدٌ مِّنْكُمْ مِّنَ الْغَاۤىِٕطِ اَوْ لٰمَسْتُمُ النِّسَاۤءَ فَلَمْ تَجِدُوْا مَاۤءً فَتَيَمَّمُوْا صَعِيْدًا طَيِّبًا فَامْسَحُوْا بِوُجُوْهِكُمْ وَاَيْدِيْكُمْ مِّنْهُ ۗمَا يُرِيْدُ اللّٰهُ لِيَجْعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّنْ حَرَجٍ وَّلٰكِنْ يُّرِيْدُ لِيُطَهِّرَكُمْ وَلِيُتِمَّ نِعْمَتَهٗ عَلَيْكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُوْنَ

O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles. And if you are in a state of janabah, then purify yourselves. But if you are ill or on a journey or one of you comes from the place of relieving himself or you have contacted women and do not find water, then seek clean earth and wipe over your faces and hands with it. Allah does not intend to make difficulty for you, but He intends to purify you and complete His favor upon you that you may be grateful. (Al-Maidah [5]: 6).

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : لَا يَقْبَلُ اللهُ صَلَاةَ أَحَدِكُمْ إِذَا أَحْدَثَ حَتَّى يَتَوَضَّأَ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Allah does not accept someone’s prayer from you if he has hadas (small hadas) until he performs wudu.” This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

In fact, the above hadith specifically explains that Allah will not accept our prayers if we have small hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) or do not have wudu.

That’s a brief explanation of “when should you perform wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
