InshaALLAAH, in this article we shall learn the significance of Wud’u with few ahadith
1.) If we wash the body parts which is to be washed the sins committed by them is wiped off
It was narrated from ‘Abdullah As-Sunabihi that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
“When the believing slave performs Wudu’ and rinses his mouth, his sins come out from his mouth. When he sniffs water into his nose and blows it out, his sins come from his nose. When he washes his face, his sins come out from his face, even from beneath his eyelashes. When he washes his hands, his sins come out from his hands, even from beneath his fingernails. When he wipes his head, his sins come out from his head, even from his ears. When washes his feet, his sins come from his feet, even from beneath his toenails. Then his walking to the Masjid and his Salah will earn extra merit for him.”
Sunan an-Nasa’i 103
•••> Sins are wiped even from finger & toe nails, such is importance of wud’u
(2) Neglecting some parts of Wud’u can lead to Hell-Fire
Narrated `Abdullah bin `Amr:
Once the Prophet (ﷺ) remained behind us in a journey. He joined us while we were performing ablution for the prayer which was over-due. We were just passing wet hands over our feet (and not washing them properly) so the Prophet (ﷺ) addressed us in a loud voice and said twice or thrice: “Save your heels from the fire.”

(3) No Wud’u no prayer

This is what has been transmitted to us by Abu Huraira from Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) and then narrated a hadith out of them and observed that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: The prayer of none amongst you would be accepted in a state of impurity until he performs ablution.

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
