|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
About Wudhu' (45)
| It is reported by way of 'Umar ibn Al-Khattab that the Prophet
said: "There is
not one of you that makes wudhu', and performs the rites of wudhu',
then says when he has completed his wudhu': 'Ash-hadu 'an lã
'ilãha 'illa 'allãhu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, wa 'anna
muhammadan `abduhu wa rasooluhu(67),
except that the eight gates of Heaven would open up for him, that
he may enter from whichever he would please".
(67) I bear witness that there
is no 'ilãh except Allah alone, no partner has he, and that
Muhammad is His bondservant, and Messenger.
Reported by Muslim, Abu Dãwood, An-Nisã'ee and Ahmad.
Al-Albãni said it was sound in his Saheeh 'Al-Jãmi`
As-Sagheer wa Ziyãdatih. This hadeeth is #162 in his
Saheeh 'Abi-Dawood, and #96 in 'Al-'irwã'
