How did the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) perform ablution?.


    Our prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him (pbuh) said: the key to Salat (prayer) is wudu' (ablution), and said: "no prayer without purification (wudu')".

   And in a similar Hadith (Sayings), the prophet said: the prayer of none amongst you would be accepted in state of impurity until he performs ablution (wudu'), and He also said: I was commanded to perform wudu' when I stand up for prayer.

  And about ablution Allah Azza wa Galla says in Surat Alma'eda aya 6: "O believers, when you stand up for prayer for the service of prayer wash your faces, and hands up to elbows, and also wipe your heads, and wash your feet up to the ankles, if you are in state of impurity then bathe and purify yourself well, but if you are in ill, or are in travelling, or any one of you has come  from the toilet, or has contact with the women, and you cannot find water, then take clean dust (clean earth) and wipe (pass it) over your faces and your hands with it,  Allah does not intend to impose any difficulty for you, He intends to purify you, and to complete his favour upon you, so that you may be grateful.

   Here Allah, Almighty, commanded performing wudu' for the prayer, this is a command obligation in the case of impurity, and in the case of purity, it is merely a recommendation .

How did the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) perform wudu'?.

    The prophet ( pbuh) said: there is no ablution for he who does not mention Allah's name over it, and He used to say at the beginning of wudu': I begin in the name of Allah, Who is the most Merciful, the most Gracious, you can say it in Arabic: bismi ellahi alrahmani Alraheem

    And during wudu' He says: O Allah, forgive my sins, and widen my grave, and grant barakat in my sustenance, you can say it in Arabic: Rabi eghfer lee zanby wa wasee'a lee fee dary wa barek lee fee rezky.

    When Uthman bin Affan called for ablution, he washed his hands three times, and rinsed his mouse, and cleaned his nose with water three times, then washed his right hand up to his elbow three times, then the same with the left arm, then he wiped his head and ears, then he washed his right foot up to the ankle three times, then washed his left foot like the right foot.

   After performing ablution Uthman said I saw the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) perform ablution like my ablution, here our prophet says: he who performs ablution like this ablution of  mine, and then stood up for prayer and offered two rakhahs of  prayer without allowing his thoughts to be distracted, Allah will pardon all his previous sins.

    What about I imagined to have passed wind (gas) during the prayer, our prophet replied: you should  not leave the prayer unless you hears sound or smells something (gas).
