The first important thing about “how should a pregnant woman do wudu?” what I will explain now is “when should a pregnant woman do wudu?”. I want you to understand that first before you read more explanations in this article because it is one of the important discussions in this article that must be understood well.

In Islamic legal literacy, the discussion of wudu is always related to minor hadas. Minor Hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) is one of the conditions that prevent Muslims from performing certain acts of worship that require them to be in a holy condition. Some examples are prayer, Tawaf, and touching the Quran. In this context, wudu is one way to remove minor hadas. The other way is Tayammum.

In Islamic legal literacy, wudu is not only an obligation for Muslims to eliminate minor hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ). Wudu is also a recommendation that is highly recommended to them. I will explain that at the end of the discussion.

Now, if you ask me, “when should a pregnant woman do wudu?”, the answer is as follows:

One: if a pregnant woman has minor hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَصْغَرُ) and is going to perform an act of worship that requires her to be in a pure state during that, then she must perform wudu.

Two: if a pregnant woman wants to always be in a holy condition (having wudu), then she have to perform wudu every time her wudu is broken.

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

How Should a Pregnant Woman Do Wudu?

The second important thing about “how should a pregnant woman do wudu?” what I will explain now is a specific explanation. So, I really hope you read the explanation below very well.

Before I give you the answer to that question, I will quote three hadiths that are specifically related to this discussion. The three hadiths I am referring to are as follows:

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ عَمْرُو رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُمَا فِيْ صِفَةِ الْوُضُوْءِ قَالَ : ثُمَّ مَسَحَ بِرَأْسِهِ وَأَدْخَلَ إِصْبِعَيْهِ السَّبَاحَتَيْنِ فِيْ أُذُنَيْهِ ، وَمَسَحَ بِأَبْهَامِهِ ظَاهِرَ أُذُنَيْهِ . أَخْرَجَهُ أَبُوْ دَاوُدَ وَالنَّسَائِيُّ

From Abdullah bin Amru radliyallahu ahuma about the nature of wudu. He said, “Then he (the Prophet Muhammad) rubbed his head and put two index fingers into two ears and he rubbed the outside of his ears with two thumbs up.” The hadith is narrated by Abu Daud and an-Nasa’i.

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 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.

عَنْ عَلِيٍّ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ فِيْ صِفَةِ وُضُوْءِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : وَمَسَحَ بِرَأْسِهِ وَاحِدَةً . أَخْرَجَهُ أَبُوْ دَاوُدَ

From Ali radliyallahu anhu about the nature of wudu of the Prophet (Muhammad) sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. He said, “He (Prophet Muhammad) wiped his head once.” The hadith was narrated by Abu Daud.

If we understand the three hadiths about wudu above, we can conclude that some things that a pregnant woman must do in wudu are as follows:

  1. Gargle. This is sunnah in wudu.
  2. Wash your face. This is obligatory in wudu.
  3. Say niyyat for wudu. This is obligatory in wudu.
  4. Washing both hands up to the elbows. This is obligatory in wudu.
  5. Wiping some of the hair of the head. This is obligatory in wudu.
  6. Wipe two ears. This is obligatory in wudu.
  7. Washing two feet to two ankles. This is obligatory in wudu.

That’s a brief explanation of “how should a pregnant woman do wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
