Dry oneself after wudu

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


There is sufficient evidence in the traditions of the Messenger of Allah (saws) that at times he would remain wet with the water of ablution, but most times he would wipe himself dry.  There is neither a commandment nor a restriction that a believer has to dry oneself after performing wudu or remain wet; thus one may do whatever is easy and comfortable for oneself.  If one wishes to wipe himself dry after ablution, it is fine; and if one wishes to remain wet with the water of ablution, there is no harm. 


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
