wudu is compulsory for performing salah because we can not offer our salat without making Wudu or Tayammum (Masah – dry ablution using vessels of clay)

Step 2: Wash both hands. wash your both hands up to your wrists three times, make sure that water has reached among the fingers and thumb too.
Step 3: Rinse your mouth. Take water in your palm of right hand and put it into your mouth, keep on rinsing your mouth like this three times and make sure, there is no more food remaining in your mouth.
Step 4: Rinse your nose. Take water in your palm of right hand and inhale it carefully into your nose three times. Use your left hand if necessary to help blowing it out
Step 5: Wash your face. wash your whole face three times while starting from your forehead to the bottom of the chin and from your right ear to the left ear properly.
Step 6: Wash your arms. wash your right hand up to the elbow properly and make sure that no part of the arm has been left dry then wash left hand like this three times.
Step 7: Perform Masah. wipe your both wet hands from forehead to back of your neck and then wipe back from your neck to forehead again, do it only one time.
Step 8: Wipe your both ears. wipe the grooves and holes of ears with the wet index fingers of your both hands while also using your thumbs of both hands to clean your behind ears from the bottom upwards. do it only one time.
Step 9: Wash your both feet. starting from right foot, wash your both feet to the ankles three times, Use your pinky finger and go through each toe to get rid of anything between the toes and make sure that water has reached between the toes and covered the rest of the foot.
Step 10: Say shahada. after completing wudu, recite a dua of witness (shahada duaa) while pointing the index finger of right hand to the sky as our beloved Holy Prophet Hazarat Muhammad (PBUH) used to say after making wudu.
Duaa Shahada: “Ash-hadu Anlaa ilaaha illALLAHu wahdahuu laa shariikalahu, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhuu wa rasuuluhu.“
Meaning of Duaa Shahada: “I bear witness that there is no deity other than Allah alone; He is One; He has no partner and I bear witness that (Hadrat) Muhammad (sallallahu ala Muhammadu sallallahu alaihu Wasallam) is His (chosen) servant and (true) Messenger.”
Note: Once wudu is completed, it does not need to be performed again until it is invalidated.
