The Beneficial Actions of Wuḍuu’

فَضَائِلُهُ‮ ‬إِحْدَى عَشَرَةَ (The beneficial actions of wuḍuu’ are eleven):

الأُولَـى التَّسْمِيَّةُ (The first beneficial action: is to say In the Name of Allah) فِـيابْـتِدَاءِ‮ ‬الْـوُضُـوءِ (at the beginning of wuḍuu’). بِـأَنْ‮ ‬يَـقُولَ‮ ‬بِـسْمِ‮ ‬اللهِ‮ ‬ (It is to say: بِـسْمِ‮ ‬الله‮ ‬[In the Name of Allah]). وَإِذَا نَسِـيَهَا (If the one performing wuḍuu’  forgot to say  بِـسْمِ‮ ‬الله‮ ‬[In the Name of Allah]) فِـي‮ ‬ابْـتِدَائِـهِ (at the beginning of his wuḍuu’),ثُـمَّ‮ ‬تَـذَكَّرَهَا (then he remembers it) فِـي‮ ‬أَثْنَائِهِ‮ ‬(while performing it), أَتَى بِهَا  (he should say it [the Basmalah]).

الثَّانِـيَةُ‮ ‬الدُّعَـاءُ‮ ‬بَـعْدَ‮ ‬الْـفَرَاغِ‮ ‬مِـنْهُ (The second beneficial action: is to recite the supplication that is said at the completion of wuḍuu) بِأَنْ‮ ‬يَقُولَ (which the worshipper says) وَهُوَ‮ ‬رَافِعٌ‮ ‬ظَرْفَهُ (while raising his index finger) إِلَى السَّمَاءِ (to the sky):

أَشْهَدُ‮ ‬أَنْ‮ ‬لاَ‮ ‬إِلَـاـه الاَّ‮ ‬الله وَحْدَهُ‮ ‬لاَ‮ ‬شَريكَ‮ ‬لَهُ‮ ‬وَأَشْهَدُ‮ ‬أَنَّ‮ ‬مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ‮ ‬وَرَسُولُهُ‮ ‬اللَّهُمَّ‮ ‬اجْعَلْنِي‮ ‬مِنَ‮ ‬التَّوَابِينَ‮ ‬وَاجْعَلْنِي‮ ‬مِن الْـمُتَطَهِّرِينَ‮.  ‬

I openly bear witness that there is no God, other than Allah, Who is Alone without a partner for Him, and I openly bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His messenger. Oh Allah, Place me among the repentant and place me among the purified ones.
