Q 1: What
is the ruling on performing Wudu' (ablution) without saying Shahadah (Testimony of Faith) after finishing it, or Isti`adhah (seeking refuge with Allah from Satan) when beginning to perform it?
Anyone who does not say Shahadah after finishing Wudu' is abandoning an act of the Sunnah, but his Wudu' is still valid. Saying Isti`adhah is not an act of the Sunnah concerning Wudu'. It is prescribed to say Basmalah (saying, "Bismillah [In the Name of Allah]") when performing Wudu'.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
