Miscellaneous topics- Fatawa- Worship- Prayer- Fatwa (11): Making Intention in Wudu'

2012-02-11

Question:

 Dear Dr. Nabulsi
 

If I want to make wudu'u and make nia (intention) in my heart, is it ok if I say it verbally? Some people here in the USA are telling me that you can't say it verbally or silently and they are saying its bed'aa.

 Thank you

Answer

 Dear sister,

 The place of intention is the heart. However, if you perform wudu' and say your intention verbally, your wudu' is right and there is no problem inshaallah.

 Best regards
