“Allah does not intend to inconvenience you, but He intends to purify you and perfect His favor to you, so that you may give thanks”. (Quran, 5:6)
There are two kinds of purification and cleanliness. The first being your inner purification (of your mind) and the second purification of the outer (your physical body).
The book Sahih Muslims ( book 2 hadith 1) it says “Cleanliness is half of faith”.
Establishing Wudu before you pray is required. If you’re interested in increase the power of your Wudu more powerful, you could copy specific Dua’s that Prophet Muhammad God bless and peace upon his name, and use them to create.
You may already have these two prayers.
It is a Dua is not a requirement (but highly recommended) since it is the Sunnah that was revealed by the Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
DUA BEFORE BEGINNING WUDU
The Dua before the beginning of wudu simply reciting bismillah.
Translation– In the Name of Allah.
Narrated Hadrat Umar ibn Al-Khattab (RA). He had heard his prophet Muhammad (PBUH) tell him,
“None of you makes wudu and completes the wudu, then says: I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah Alone, He has no partners; and I bear witness that Muhammad is his Messenger, except that all eight Gates of Paradise are opened for him, so he may enter by whichever he pleases.” Related by Muslim, Abu Dawood, Tirmidhee, An Nisaae, and Ibn Maajah.
Remember the Dua that follows Wudu is Shahada Here is an Arabic transliteration, so you can say it aloud.
DUA AFTER WUDU
The Dua after the wudu refers to the shahada.
Ash-hadu ‘an laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa ‘ash-hadu ‘anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasooluhu.
English Translated “I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner; and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger.”
According to various sources, there are two additional Duas you can learn after completing the wudu. The two above are the most straightforward to use immediately since you already know the two by heart.
Transliteration: Allaahummaj’alnee minat-tawwaabeena waj’alnee minal-mutatahhireen. Translated: O Allah, include me among those who seek You for repentance and allow me to be one of the pure. (Source)
Transliteration: Subhaanaka Allaahumma wa bihamdika, ‘ash-hadu ‘an laa ‘ilaaha ‘illaa ‘Anta, ‘astaghfiruka wa ‘atoobu ‘ilayk. Translated: Glory is to You Allah, Allah and praise. I testify that there is no god more worthy of worship than You. I pray for forgiveness and seek Your forgiveness for forgiveness. (Source)
