Merits of Ablution (Wudu’)

Abu Hurairah (Radhiallahu anhu) reported:

that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

“Shall I not tell you something by which Allah effaces the sins and elevates ranks (in Jannah)?”

The Companions said; “Certainly, O Messenger of Allah.” He (Sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said:

“Performing the Wudu’ thoroughly in spite of difficult circumstances, walking with more paces to the mosque, and waiting for the next As-Salat (the prayer) after observing Salat; and that is Ar-Ribat, and that is Ar-Ribat.”


Commentary: Hardship and unpleasantness here stand for the uneasiness that one feels while performing Wudu’ in severe cold. Ar-Ribat means watching the frontiers or battlefront to check the invasion of the enemy. To wait for the next Salat after offering a Salat is regarded as Ribat for the reason that by so doing, a person who is particular in offering Salat keeps himself constantly engaged in the obedience and worship of Allah to keep Satan away from him.
