Prayer After Ablution (Wudu) ~ Hi all readers! In a number of previous articles, I have explained ablution (wudu). Many things we already know about ablution. As with other activities, the airport also has a prefix and suffix. Well, when we have finished the ablution (wudu), we are encouraged to read the prayer. This is what we will discuss in this article. Do you already know what prayer is?
As always, before I explain the prayer after ablution (wudu), I will present the hadith of Prophet Muhammad that related to our discussion.
Hadith About Prayer After Ablution (Wudu)
The hadith about prayer after ablution (wudu) that I mean is as follows:
عَنْ عُمَرَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ :مَا مِنْكُمْ مِنْ أَحَدٍ يَتَوَضَّأُ فَيُسْبِغُ الْوُضُوْءَ ثُمَّ يَقُوْلُ : أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ , إِلَّا فُتِحَتْ لَهُ أَبْوَابُ الْجَنَّةِ الثَّمَانِيَّةِ يَدْخُلُ مِنْ أَيِّهَا شَاءَ . أَخْرَجَهُ مُسْلِمٌ وَالتِّرْمِذِيُّ وَزَادَ : اَللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ التَّوَّابِيْنَ وَاجْعَلْنِيْ مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِيْنَ
From Umar radliyallahu anhu, he said, “The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “It is not one of you who performs ablution then perfects it, then says, “I testify that there is no god but Allah who has no partner, and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger, “except the eight doors of Heaven have been opened for him. He can enter any door he wants. “The hadith is narrated by Muslim and at-Tirmidhi. He (at-Tirmidhi) added another editor, “O Allah, make me among those who repent and make me including those who are cleansed.”
All readers! Writing using Arabic letters that I bold in the above hadith is a prayer that we are encouraged to read if we finish ablution. In the above hadith there is also information about the great rewards that we will receive in the afterlife if we live in the world, we perfect the ablution and read the prayer.
Besides that, there are some things we need to know about the hadith above;
One; The above hadith describes the prayer given by the Prophet Muhammad to us so that we read every time we finish our ablution. The aim is that we get the pleasure of Allah Taala and so that the prayer becomes the cause of the opening of the gates of Heaven and we can enter into Heaven from any door we want.
Two; The hadith explains that Heaven has eight doors. The lesson of explanation about the opening of the eight doors of Heaven is to emphasize how high the position of the person who always reads the prayer.
Three; Allah Taala has told the Prophet Muhammad about the reward that has been prepared for the believers. The Prophet Muhammad also told the people that they should do it.
Four; The above hadith is an explanation, that ablution is an intermediary for purifying the outer body, while prayer is an intermediary for purifying the heart.
I think that is enough for this article about prayer after ablution (wudu). Hopefully, we are among those who can perfect ablution and read the prayer. And, hopefully, this article is useful! Amen!
