المقال مترجم الى : العربية

At-Tasmaya (Saying Bismillah)

»It was narrated that Anas said: "Some of the companions of the Prophet (Peace Be upon Him) were looking (for water) for Wudu'. Allah's Messenger (PBUH) said: 'Do any of you have water?'. He put his hands in the water and said: 'Perform Wudu' in the name of Allah (Bismillah).' I saw the water coming out from between his fingers until they had all performed Wudu." Thabit said: I said to Anas: How many did you see? He said: About seventy. «([1])

»Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Messenger (Peace Be upon Him) said, "There is no Wudu' for the one who does not mention Allah's Name upon it. «([2])


Starting by Washing the Hands and Making Wudu' Thrice

»Narrated Humran (the servant of Uthman): I saw Uthman ibn Affan asking for a tumbler of water (and when it was brought) he poured water over his hands and washed them thrice and then put his right hand in the water container and rinsed his mouth, washed his nose by snuffing water in it and then blowing it out. Then he washed his face and forearms up to the elbows thrice, passed his wet hands over his head and washed his feet up to the ankles thrice. Then he said, "Allah's Apostle (Peace Be upon Him) said 'If anyone performs ablution like that of mine and offers a two-rak'at prayer during which he does not think of anything else (not related to the present prayer) then his past sins will be forgiven. «([3])


Snuffing Water up the Nose

»Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (Peace Be upon Him) said, "Whoever performs ablution should clean his nose with water by snuffing water (up the nose and then blowing it out), and whoever cleans his private parts with stones should do it with odd number of stones."« ([4])
