Is Unholy Person (Not Having Wudu) Allowed to Say Sentences of Dhikr? Read This!

Shariah News: Is Unholy Person (Not Having Wudu) Allowed to Say Sentences of Dhikr? ~ Hi all readers! In this article I will explain about the law saying the words of dhikr in an unholy state? The sentences of dhikr are sentences that contain praise to Allah, such as اَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ (Allah is great), اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ (all praise be to Allah), سُبْحَانَ اْللَّهِ (Supreme Holy Allah), لاَ إِلَهَ إِلَّا اْللَّهُ (there is no god but Allah), أَسْتَغْفِرُ اْللَّهَ (I ask Allah for forgiveness), and so on. As a Muslim we must know about it, because it will determine the legitimate or invalid dzikir that we say, at the same time it will also determine whether we sin or not.

As always, before I answer the question above and speak more about sentences of Dhikr, I will quote the hadith of Prophet Muhammad below;

عَنْ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ : كَانَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهِ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَذْكُرُ اللهَ عَلَى كُلِّ أَحْيَانِهِ . رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ

From Aisah radliyallahu anha, she said, “The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa sallam did dzikir to Allah in almost all of his time.” The hadith is narrated by Muslim.


Solution for People Who Cannot Read Quran in Prayer (Salat)

Menstruation in Quran and Hadith

All readers! If we observe the hadith above, we will understand, that we are allowed to say the dhikr sentences even though we are in an impure state. What is meant in the unholy state here is, like we have been confused and we have not yet had an ablution, or, if it is a woman, when she is in a state of menstruation, childbirth, and so on. We may also say the dhikr sentences orally or with the heart, whether we are standing, sitting, supine, working, and so on.

What about reading prayers to the Prophet Muhammad?

Before I want to say, what I mean by prayer to the Prophet Muhammad are sentences that contain dhikr to Allah, prayer, and the name of the Prophet Muhammad. There are many editorial sentences, such as;

اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ عَلَى الْنَّبِيِّ مُحَمَّدٍ

O Allah, give mercy and salvation to the Prophet Muhammad.

Are we allowed to read the prayer if we are not pure (not have ablution ora wudu)?

Honestly, I have not found data that prohibits someone from reading prayer sentences when he is in an impure state. That is, we may read the prayer even if we are not pure. In fact, reading prayers is a practice that is definitely accepted by Allah.

That is a brief explanation of sentences of Dhikr. May be useful. Amen!

I think that is enough for this article. See you again in the next article!
