`Uthman bin `Affan (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I saw the Messenger of Allah (PBUH)
performing Wudu' the way I have just done it and said, "
He who performs Wudu' like this, his previous sins will be
forgiven and his Salat and walking to the mosque will be considered as supererogatory act of worship
Wudu' is a means of remission of minor sins, provided those sins are not related to the rights of
people because they too will not be forgiven without penitence and compensating the aggrieved or the wronged.
To perform Wudu' at home before proceeding to the mosque for Salat is highly meritorious. He who does so, will be
purged of minor sins. Then his going to the mosque and performance of Salat there, is a means for gaining further

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
When a
Muslim, or a believer, washes his face (in the course of Wudu'), every sin which he committed with his eyes, will be
washed away from his face with water, or with the last drop of water; when he washes his hands, every sin which is
committed by his hands will be effaced from his hands with the water, or with the last drop of water; and when he
washes his feet, every sin his feet committed will be washed away with the water, or with the last drop of water;
until he finally emerges cleansed of all his sins
This Hadith has the same meaning mentioned in the preceding Ahadith. That is to say, such minor
sins are washed off by Wudu'. In other words, Wudu' is a means of purification of the body as well as the soul.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) went to the (
cemetery and said, "
May you be secured from punishment, O dwellers of abode of the believers! We, if Allah wills,
will follow you. I wish we see my brothers
.'' The Companions said, "O Messenger of Allah! Are not we your
brothers?'' He (PBUH) said, "
You are my Companions, but my brothers are those who have not come into the world
'' They said; "O Messenger of Allah! How will you recognize those of your Ummah who are not born yet?'' He
(PBUH) said, "
Say, if a man has white-footed horses with white foreheads among horses which are pure black, will
he not recognize his own horses
?'' They said; "Certainly, O Messenger of Allah!'' He (PBUH) said, "
They (my
followers) will come with bright faces and white limbs because of Wudu'; and I will arrive at the Haud (Al-Kauthar)
ahead of them.
On the principle "
The believers are brothers
'' that is manifested in Surat Al-Hujurat of the Qur'an
(49:10), the Prophet (PBUH) regarded all the successive generations of Muslims as his brothers. His Companions
have an added distinction that they are his brothers as well as his companions.
This Hadith also mentions Haud Al-Kauthar which is awarded to the Prophet (PBUH) on the Day of Requital, and
he will give water from it to his followers after which they will never feel thirst. Those who invent innovations in
religion, will be deprived of this honour, as is evident from other narratives.
Farat is a person who goes ahead of the others in the caravan and makes arrangements for the encampment and
provisions of the caravan. It is a unique distinction of the Muslims that their Prophet (PBUH) will be holding that
position on the Day of Requital.
