What Is Niyyah for Wudu?
The first important thing about niyyah for wudu in Arabic and English that I will explain now is “what is niyyah for wudu?”. I want you to understand that first before you read more explanations in this article because that is the basic thing in this discussion that must be understood well.
There are two basic things I want to clarify regarding this question (what is niyyah for wudu?):
Literally, niyyah is the intention or purpose of an action. So, the niyyah distinguishes between the intent or purpose of an action and the intent or purpose of another action.
I think you already know what wudu is. In short, wudu is a ritual in Islam to remove minor hadas. In general, wudu begins with gargling and ends with washing the two feet.
So, what is meant by niyyah for wudu is the intention or purpose of the action. The act in question is wudu. So, we rinse our mouths, wash our faces, wash our hands up to our elbows, wipe some of the hair on our heads, wipe our ears, and wash our feet up to our eyes with the intention of or with the intention of performing wudu.
That’s an important explanation of “what is niyyah for wudu?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
Why Is Niyyah for Wudu Important?
The second important thing about niyyah for wudu in Arabic and English which I will explain now is “why is niyyah for wudu important?”. I want you to understand that now so that you understand the urgency of the niyyah for wudu.
Before I explain the answer to the question (why is niyyah for wudu important?), I will quote one hadith about the niyyah. The hadith I mean is as follows:
عَنْ عُمَرَ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهم عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إِنَّمَا الْأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّةِ وَلِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مَا نَوَى فَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَمَنْ كَانَتْ هِجْرَتُهُ لدُنْيَا يُصِيبُهَا أَوِ امْرَأَةٍ يَتَزَوَّجُهَا فَهِجْرَتُهُ إِلَى مَا هَاجَرَ إِلَيْهِ
From Umar radliyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “Action depends on his intention (niyyah), and a person only gets something according to his intention. Whoever emigrated to Allah and His Messenger, then his emigration was to Allah and His Messenger, and whoever emigrated for the sake of the world or because of the woman he wanted to marry, then his emigration was according to where he migrated.”
All readers! If we understand the hadith above, we can conclude that niyyah in Islam is something very important. The reason is because the niyyah distinguishes between good and bad deeds. Similarly, niyyah for wudu.
In general, wudu is performed before Muslims perform the obligations in Islam that require them to be in a holy condition. The most common example is prayer (salat). Prayer (salat) is one of the obligations for Muslims that requires them to be in a holy condition when praying (salat). Prayer (salat) will not be valid if it is performed in an impure condition.
In Islam, something that can complete an obligation is an obligation. We can find an explanation of that in the rules of Islamic law below:
مَا لَا يَتِمُّ الْوَاجِبُ إِلَّا بِهِ فَهُوَ وَاجِبٌ
Something which an obligation cannot be perfected except by that, then it becomes an obligation.
So, if you ask me, “why is niyyah for wudu important?”, the answer is “because of niyyah for wudu can clarify the meaning and purpose of wudu”.
That’s an important explanation of “why is niyyah for wudu important?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
