In this lesson, Ustadh Abu Humayd Saalim completed the chapter “Description of the Wudhu”. He began with a recap of the manner of making wudhoo, and the dua made after completing wudhoo.

Some of the affairs discussed in this lesson were:

  • The relevance of making supplication after wudhoo, which is to combine both physical and spiritual purity.
  • It is permissible to dry the body parts washed for wudhoo with a towel or through other means. Shaykh Uthaymeen says the proof of the permissibility of drying oneself is the absence of a proof prohibiting it.
  • Every Muslim must know that every body part which is prescribed to be washed in wudhoo, must be washed thoroughly.
    • The Prophet Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Woe to the heels (which are not washed) in the fire”.
  • The perfection of wudhoo is not to use excessive water, rather it is to ensure water reaches all parts of the organ being washed without being excessive and wasting water.


  • Excessiveness use of water has detestable consequences such as:
    • Incomplete purification.
    • Excessive in worship.
    • Insinuation in purification
