Abu Huraira ( may Allah be pleased with him ):

I heard Allah’s Messenger ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) saying, “My people will come on the Day of Resurrection with bright faces, hands and feet from the traces of Wudu. If any of you can lengthen his brightness, let him do so”

[ Agreed upon and this is Muslim’s version ]

Ablution is the purification with water from the minor ritual impurity. The Arabic term Wudoo` ( ablution ) is derived from light, splendor, purity and serenity.

Allah prescribed it to purify the heart and the body. Allah considered purity a condition of the validity of prayer and circumambulation arround the Ka`ba, the purification is a light for the believer on the Day of Resurrection, as it was a light in the worldly life reflected from his face on his heart and from his heart on his face.

The prophets used to wash the body parts of ablutions once, yet our Prophet, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, used to wash these body parts three times; as stated in many narrations.

Ablution expiates the sins, increases the reward, and raises the degrees. It is the weapon of the believer, it protects him from the evil concerns of the soul, and the whispers of the devil. While he is in a state of ablution, the believer feels psychological comfort, an expansion in his chest, and virility of his body, which he can not find while he is not in a state of ablution.

Moreover, ablution extinguishes the anger, and its light shines on the face of the believer.

This commandment includes a good promise to those who perform ablution completely in the prescribed manner. Those who lengthen wiping the faces and the other body parts will get a additional rewards.

The Messenger of Allah ( may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him ) will boast of his nation on the Day of Resurrection. He will distinguish his nation from the other nations with the light that covers their faces and their legs thanks to the light they obtained from the ablution in this world.
