34 Perform Ye Ablutions For The Obligatory Prayer #18






Ablutions are specifically associated with certain prayers. They must
precede the offering of the three Obligatory Prayers, the daily recitation
of Allah-u-Abha ninety-five times, and the recital of the verse
prescribed as an alternative to obligatory prayer and fasting for women in
their courses (see note 20).

The prescribed ablutions consist of washing the hands and the face in
preparation for prayer. In the case of the medium Obligatory Prayer, this
is accompanied by the recitation of certain verses (see Some Texts
Revealed by Baha'u'llah Supplementary to the Kitab-i-Aqdas).

That ablutions have a significance beyond washing may be seen from the
fact that even should one have bathed oneself immediately before reciting
the Obligatory Prayer, it would still be necessary to perform ablutions (Q
and A 18).

When no water is available for ablutions, a prescribed verse is to be
repeated five times (see note 16), and this provision is extended to those
for whom the use of water would be physically harmful (Q and A 51).

The detailed provisions of the law concerning ablutions are set out in the
Synopsis and Codification, section IV.A.10.a.-g., as well as in Questions
and Answers numbers 51, 62, 66, 77 and 86.
