When his eyes fall on water:
I begin my ablution in the Name of Allah. All praise is due to Allah, Who made water purifying, and not najis.
Bismillahi wa billahi wal hamdu lil lahil lazi ja’alal ma’a tahura wa lam yaj alhu najisa.
While washing the hands before performing Wudhu
O Lord! Make me of those who repent and purify themselves.
Alla hummaj alni minat tawwabina waj alni minal mutatah hirin.
While rinsing the mouth one should say
O Lord! Dictate to me the principles of faith on the Day I meet You, and make my tongue fluent with Your remembrance.
Alla Humma laq qini hujjati yawma alqaka wa atliq lisani bizikrika.
While washing the nose
O Lord! Do not deprive me of the fragrance of Paradise, and make me of those who smell its fragrance and per fume.
Alla humma la tuharrim ‘alaya rihal jannati waj ‘alni mim man yashummu riha ha wa rawha ha wa tiba ha.
While washing the face
O Lord! Make my face bright on the Day when the faces will turn dark. Do not darken my face on the Day when the face s are bright.
Alla humma bayyiz wajhi yawma taswaddufihil wujuh wala tusawwid waj hi yawma tabyazzul wujuh.
While performing the wiping of the head,
O Lord! Cover me with Your Mercy, Blessings and Forgiveness.
Alla humma ghashshini bi rahmatika wa barakatika wa ‘afwika.
While performing the wiping of the feet
O Lord! Keep me firm on the Bridge (to Paradise) on the Day when the feet will slip, and help me in my efforts to do things which will please You, O’ Glorious and Mighty!
Alla humma thabbitni alas sirati yawma tazillu fihil aqdam. Waj’al sa’yi fi ma yurzika ‘anni ya zal jalali wal ikram.
‘Ablution is half of faith.’ ‘He who performs ablution whilst already in a state of purity is given ten good merits.’ The Prophet (SAWA)
‘He who renews his ablution without [the need to do so to purify] an impurity, Allah renews his repentance without him
[needing to asking for forgiveness.’ Imam al-Sadiq (AS) [Wasael al-Shi`aah , v. 1, p. 264, no.7]
