Wudhu: Cleansing while Talking to Allah


Assalamualaikum. Good day everyone, May all in good health, happy environment and bless by Allah S.W.T.


Today I love to talk about wudhu.

As a Muslim, wudhu is something that is not rare or hard to do. All of us, as Muslims, will do wudhu before performing our daily prayers. Sometimes some people do it just out of habits like before going to work or before getting ready to sleep at night. This wudhu is so unique in some ways that I personally hope I can learn more about it.

Today, before I performing my subuh prayer, I went to take my wudhu like any other day. But today it is more unusual. Before this, I usually lingering my mind with Dunya while performing my wudhu.
I always think about what I'm gonna do today? Are there any headlines I need to aware of? Too many things in my mind while my body is performing my wudhu.

But today, I sat on my bed and for the first time I was thinking,

" Why I need to perform Wudhu?"

I ask this question not out of laziness don't want to take or anything. It is just out of curiosity and searching for the 'purpose' that only Allah Knows.

Because I know that Allah Knows best. For the first time, I asked Him sincerely,

Allah, please showed me why I need to do this? What is my purpose here, Ya Allah?

I am still searching for the answer, but asking Him sincerely really makes my heart calm. So when I perform my wudhu, for the first time, I talked to Him because I love the calmness I felt inside my heart when I ask Him personally before I went to Wudhu.

I knew that I will not get an answer, but I believe Allah is there, and Allah Hears. Maybe the calmness I felt in my heart was the answer that He Wants to give me. Wallahualam. But the truth is, I love how I felt.

So, during my wudhu, I keep on talking to Him. Instead of thinking about Dunya ( Problems that never settles and thinking about people that always has flaws), I started talking to Him!

When I reached for the cold water at my hand for my wudhu. I talked to Him of how much sins I've done with these two hands. I asked Him for forgiveness for these two hands that Allah gave me. I asked Allah to please make use of my hands to do something good for the people and for Islam.

I kept on doing it to all parts of my body without noticing it. I never felt so close to Him while taking my wudhu. I make jokes too. I said to Allah not to make me too fat. I want to be more confident with myself and always be so light to do ibadah to Him.

Then after I finished, It felt different when performing my salah. I believe everything needs to start during the preparation. Like we're going for a war, we need equipment and shield and many more.

Same with preparation to meet our Creator, Allah SWT. My salah is not really perfect. Too many flaws and need more knowledge and fixing it. However, I felt blessed for having this calmness when preparing my wudhu and perform my salah.

I will try to do it consistently to look at the more excellent outcome that I can achieve in shaa Allah.

From this day on, I hope I can TALK more to Him not just during my wudhu but in my everyday life in shaa Allah. So can you!

Let us be closer to Allah S.W.T.
