From this perspective we were keen to teach the Muslim youth rules of Wudu’ (ablution) in accordance with the guidance of the Prophet through an interesting and catchy style, step-by-step associated with pictures.

 

We Praise Allah lord of the Realms and his prayer and peace be upon the most noble of his Messengers our Prophet and on his family and companions.


Childhood is the most crucial period in a person’s life, where the ability of perceiving knowledge rises to the peak. An educator, during this period, could grasp this ability by building their foundation concerning virtuous principles and proper directing of youths minds and conduct…The Messenger of Allah said: “instruct by ease and do not burden…” [Reported by Imam Ahmad in his Musnad]

‹‹علموا ويسروا ولاتعسروا...››

After that 'Uthman said, "I saw the Prophet performing ablution like this of mine. [Reported by Al-Bukhari]

‹‹عن حمران مولى عثمان بن عفان: أنه رأى عثمان دعا بوضوء ، فأفرغ على يديه من إنائه فغسلهما ثلاث مرات ، ثم أدخل يمينه في الوضوء ، ثم تمضمض واستنشق واستنثر ، ثم غسل وجهه ثلاثا ويديه إلى المرفقين ثلاثا ، ثم مسح برأسه ، ثم غسل كل رجل ثلاثا ، ثم قال: رأيت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يتوضأ نحو وضوئي هذا...››
