Saying ‘Bismillaah’ before Wudoo’

Question 64: What is the ruling on someone who performs Wudoo’ (ablution), but does not mention the Name of Allah?

Answer: All praise be to Allaah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions. It is obligatory to utter Tasmiyah (saying, “Bismillaah [In the Name of Allaah]”) at the time of performing Wudoo’, but if anyone performs it without mentioning the Name of Allaah, through forgetfulness or ignorance of the legal ruling, their ablution is still valid. However, if anyone omits it deliberately, their Wudoo’ is invalid, according to the more correct of the two scholarly opinions, based on the Hadeeth of the Prophet (peace be upon him): “No Wudoo’ (is valid) for the one who has not mentioned the Name of Allaah upon it.” read more here.
