The Prescription of Wudhoo in The Kitaab And Sunnah

Allaah Ta'ala says: (Qura`n shareef)

{O Ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles}, [Soorah al-Maa.idah, 5:7]

                                                       Hadith Shareef :

1. Abu Hurayrah (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhu) said: Rasoolullaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

«The Prayer of anyone of you breaching purification is not accepted unless he makes wudhoo.» [al-Bukhaaree, (Fat.hul-Baaree, 1/206), Muslim (no.225) and others].

2. Ibn 'Umar (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhumaa) said: Indeed I heard Rasoolullaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) say:

«Allaah does not accept Prayer without purification, nor Sadaqah from illegally attained wealth.» [Muslim (1/160) and others].

3. Ibn 'Abbaas (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhumaa) said: Rasoolullaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

«Verily I have been ordered to make wudhoo when I stand for Prayer.» [Saheeh. Reported by Abu Daawood (no.3760); at-Tirmidhee (no.1848), and he declared it to be 'hasan-saheeh': (1/73). And Shaykh al-Albaanee declares it to be 'saheeh' ('Saheeh ul-Jaami', no.2333)].

4. Abu Sa'eed (radhi-yAllaahu 'anhu) said: Rasoolullaah (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said:

«The key to Prayer is purification, its 'tahreem' [1] is the takbeer and its 'tahleel' [2] is the giving salaam.» [Reported by Abu Daawood (no.60); at-Tirmidhee (no.3); Ibn Maajah (no.275) and others. Declared as 'saheeh' by Shaykh al-Albaanee: ('Saheeh ul-Jaami', no.5761)].
