Hadith Explanation

Wudhu Washes Away Sins

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When a Muslim servant (of Allah) or a believer (Mumin) washes his face (in the course of Wudhu), every sin he has committed with his eyes is washed away from his face along with the water, or with the last drop of water; when he washes his hands, every sin they wrought is erased from his hands with the water, or with the last drop of water; and when he washes his feet, every sin towards which his feet walked is washed away with water, or with the last drop of water, with the result that he comes out cleansed of all sins.” [Sahih Muslim]

This hadith mentions the excellence of Wudhu. A Muslim who performs Wudhu five times a day will be both outwardly and inwardly clean. Inward cleanliness is cleanliness of the Ruh (soul). On the Day of Judgment, those who present a clean and intact Ruh to Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) will be the successful ones. “But only he (will prosper) that brings to Allah a sound heart (qalb saleem).” [Quran 26:89]

On the Day of Judgment we will be inside out. Those who kept their souls purified will be breathtakingly beautiful while those who indulged in sins, thus dirtying their souls, will be extraordinarily ugly to look at. In this world we are born with the looks that we have. They are a part of our test of life. But we choose by our actions how beautiful or ugly we will be on the Day of Judgment.
