Washing away Sins

“Performing wudu” means washing before Muslim prayer. Muslims wash their hands, face, and feet in certain ways to be clean before they pray.

What if a Muslim does not perform wudu before prayer? “Then you basically are just wasting your time [praying],” said Hera, a 14-year-old American Muslim. “You have to be clean.”

“Whenever you do wudu, small sins get washed away,” said Hera’s friend Hanifa.

Note: A Christian hymn says, “What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus” What do the words mean? Pray today that Muslims will understand how God has provided a way for the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ.
