About Wudhu' (45)
It is reported by way of 'Umar ibn Al-Khattab that the Prophet said: "There is not one of you that makes wudhu', and performs the rites of wudhu', then says when he has completed his wudhu': 'Ash-hadu 'an lã 'ilãha 'illa 'allãhu wahdahu la shareeka lahu, wa 'anna muhammadan `abduhu wa rasooluhu(67),
except that the eight gates of Heaven would open up for him, that he may enter from whichever he would please".

(67) I bear witness that there is no 'ilãh except Allah alone, no partner has he, and that Muhammad is His bondservant, and Messenger.


Reported by Muslim, Abu Dãwood, An-Nisã'ee and Ahmad. Al-Albãni said it was sound in his Saheeh 'Al-Jãmi` As-Sagheer wa Ziyãdatih. This hadeeth is #162 in his Saheeh 'Abi-Dawood, and #96 in 'Al-'irwã'
