We are acquainted with two types of cleaning and purifying, one pertains to cleansing the mind while the other relates to cleansing the body’s exterior.

Dua for wudu before, during, and after Wudu

According to Prophet Muhammad SAWW, performing Wudu effectively and reciting the dua after Wudu is the initial and significant requirement of Salah.

It is said that whoever performs Wudu proficiently and recites the dua after Wudu, will have eight doors of heaven opened for them, and they will be granted access to enter through whichever door they desire.

Dua for wudu After-1

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ

In English

Ash-hadu ‘an laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa ‘ash-hadu ‘anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasooluhu.


I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, the One, without any partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger.


It is not mandatory to perform wudu (ablution) before making dua (supplication) in Islam. In fact, one can make dua without being in a state of wudu. It is permissible to raise one’s hands and ask Allah for whatever is needed, regardless of the time or location. This is considered a great blessing and mercy from Allah SWT.
