Dua After Wudu:
Invocation after Wudu:
Look towards the sky and recite this dua after completing wudu:
أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدَاً عَبْدَهُ وَرَسُولَهُ
Ashhadu an la ilaha illallahu wahdahu la shareeka lahu wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasooluhu.
“I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone. He has no partner; and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger.
Eight doors of Jannah will be open for the reciter of this dua. He will be able to enter from whichever door he pleases. (Mishkat)
It is recorded in the same narration that the dua should be recited three times. (Hisnul Hasin)
Second Dua after Ablution:
What to say (dua) upon completing Ablution:
اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْنِي مِنَ التَّوَّابِينَ وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ
Allahummaj’alni minattawwabeena waj’alni minal mutatahhireen.
“O Allah, make me among those who repent, and make me among those who purify themselves.
Third Dua after Wudu:
سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبَ إِلَيْكَ
Subhanaka Allahumma wa bi hamdika, ashhadu an la ilaha illa Anta, astaghfiruka wa atubu ilaik.
Glory is to You, Oh Allah, and Praise; I bear witness that there is no god but You. I seek Your forgiveness and turn to you in repentance.
Staying in the State of Wudu:
Ablution is half of faith.’The Prophet (SAWA) [Bihar al-Anwar, v. 80, p. 238, no. 12]
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]
‘He who performs ablution whilst already in a state of purity is given ten good merits.’The Prophet (SAW) [Kanz al-`Ummal, no. 26042]
He who performs the ablution in the freezing cold weather is given twice the reward, and he who performs the ablution in the extreme heat is given a single share of the reward.’[Kanz al-`Ummal, no. 26059]
