brightness_1 Uttering the narrated supplication of Sunnah after Wudū’.

‘Umar (ABPWH) narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “None of you makes ablution and completes it without uttering, ‘I bear witness that none has the right to be worshiped except Allāh alone, and He has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger,’ except that all eight gates of Paradise will be opened for him, so he may enter from whichever gate he pleases.” (Muslim no. 234)

Furthermore, it was mentioned in the Hadeeth narrated by Abi Sa‘eed (ABPWH) that the Prophet (PBUH) said, “Whoever makes ablution and says, ‘Glory be to You, O Allāh, and all praise is due to You. I bear witness that there is no God except You. I seek Your forgiveness and I repent unto you,’ Allah will seal it with a stamp, then it will be raised under the Throne and it will not be broken until the day of resurrection.” (An-Nasā’iy, Book of the Day and Night p. 173-174, An-Nasā’iy in As-Sunan Al-Kubra 6/25)

Ibn Hajar, may Allāh have mercy upon him, authenticated the Isnād (Chain of narration) of this Hadeeth and he said it is not classified as Marfoo‘, but it is rather Mawqoof (Mawqoof refers to a narration attributed to a companion, whether a statement of that companion, an action, or otherwise). Ibn Hajar continues that, however, this does not harm the grade of the Hadeeth, which is considered to have an equivalent authenticity of a Marfoo‘ Hadeeth, because its content is not prone to accommodate the opinion of the narrator.
