As Salaamu Alaikum,

Insha allah could someone tell me if there is a Sunnah prayer after you make Wudoo. In the book called Sunnah Prayer(english version pg. 73) By Sh. Muhammad 'Umar Bazmool it was a question towards the end regarding a Sunnah prayer after you make Wudoo. It didnt explain in detail if there was a sunnah prayer after you make Wudoo. TextText

Assalaamuaalaikum wa rahmathullahi wa barakathuhu,

Al-Hamdu-Lillaah As-Salaatu Wa-Assalaamu Alaa Rasoo-Lillaah,

To proceed:

Below is a relevat fatwa on the issue inshaa Allah.


What is permissible during travels?  

There are four things permissible during travels:
i. The prayers consisting of 4 Rakaıhs are shortened to 2 Rakaıhs.

ii. Breaking the fast during Ramadhaan, making the same number of days up during other days.

iii. Wiping over the Khuffs 3 days and nights, beginning from the first time the person wipes over them.

iv. The recommendation for the Sunnah prayers of Dhuhr, Maghrib, and Ishaa is lifted. As for the Sunnah prayer of Fajr and the rest of the optional prayers, performing those remains legislated and preferred.

So the traveler prays the night prayer, the Sunnah prayer of Fajr, the two Rakıahs of Dhuhaa, the Sunnah prayer after making Wudhoo, the two Rakıahs of entering the masjid, and the two Rakıahs of arriving from a journey - for surely, from the Sunnah is that when a person arrives from a journey, before he enters his house, he first begins with the masjid, entering it and praying two Rakıahs in it. [1]

Likewise, the rest of the optional prayers remain legislated with regards to the traveler except for what I have previously said, and they are: the Sunnah prayers of Dhuhr, Maghrib, and Ishaa because the Prophet (SallAllaahu alaihi wa sallam) used not to pray these three optional prayers (while traveling).

[3] This has been reported in the long Hadeeth of Kıab ibn Maalik regarding his repentance with the wording, ıHe used to, when he arrived from a journey, begin with the masjid, praying two Rakıahs in it.ı Reported by al-Bukhaaree, no. 4418 and Muslim, no. 2769.

wa Alaikum Salaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,

An Nabi salla lahu alayhi wa salaam said, "If after performing wudhu, complete recites, the following dua, "Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha ill-Allahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, wa ash-Hadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa Rasooluhu", all the eight gates of Paradise will be opened for him and he may enter through any gate he wishes". (Muslim)

Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah

This may elucidate the issue for you. A hadeeth I have always kept in my heart and loved. It touches on the "why" anyway:

Bukhari 2.250; Bilal's footsteps heard in paradise before the Prophet

Abu Harariah (radillahu anhu) reported the Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasalaam) said, "At the time of the Fajr prayer the Prophet asked Bilal, "Tell me of the best deed you did after embracing Islam, for I heard your footsteps in front of me in Paradise." Bilal replied, "I did not do anything worth mentioning except that whenever I performed ablution during the day or night, I prayed after that ablution as much as was written for me."

Hope that helps. I believe another narration with slightly different text explains Bilal will lead the horse of Rasoolullah (salallahu alaihi waslaam)---wa Allahu "alim.

"It is enough knowledge that one fears Allah, it is enough ignorance that one be impressed by his own knowledge" Masrooq(rahimahullah)
