Shuroot (Conditions)


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم       


In the Name of Allah The most Gracious The Most Merciful


These conditions must be met in order for your ablution to be accepted and to be in a state of purity. 

There are ten conditions to be met:

1. Islam

2. sanity

3. Age of discernment

4. Intention

5. One performing wudhu` intends to fulfill it and does not do the washing of any part of the wudhu` for any other reason.

6. Whatever caused a person to make wudhu` has stopped (using washroom)

7. Performing istinja` or istijmar before doing wudhu` if one used the washroom. Istinja` is the purification from urine and stool using water. Istijmar  is the purification from urine or stool with the use of stones, toilet paper and the likes.

8. Using pure water that is also halal water. It is not permissible to use water that has been stolen, wrongfully taken or that is impure.

9. Removing anything that blocks water from reaching the skin or nails such as polish, paint and the likes.

10. One makes the wudhu` at the time of the prayer. This is for those who suffer from frequent leakage whether urine or other fluids. Narrated ‘Aisha: Fatima bint Abi Hubaish came to the Prophet and said, “O Allah’s Apostle I get persistent bleeding from the uterus and do not become clean. Shall I give up my prayers?” Allah’s Apostle replied, “No, because it is from a blood vessel and not the menses. So when your real menses begins give up your prayers and when it has finished wash off the blood and offer your prayers.” Hisham (the sub narrator) narrated that his father had also said, (the Prophet told her): “Perform ablution for every prayer till the time of the next period comes.” (Sahih al-bukhari, Book of Ablutions, Hadith 228)
