Who said I am even interrested in this? What matters to me is what is the right way of wudhu and what is not. 

Fair enough, then that is what all madhhabs have concluded on the basis of the mulititude and authenticity of narrations showing that. You can either try to de-authenticate them. But I still believe that de-authenticating them on the basis that it supposedly contradicts Qur'an is a wrong assertion. If you can de-authenticate them otherwise by pointing out a defect of a narrator example, then I would like to see that. The other option is to interpret these narrations differently than the scholars of the madhabs do.

What then about the Prophet's (peace be upon him and his family) understanding of that verse? The Messenger of Allah himself stated that the verse commands the WIPING of the feet, according to this sa

Akhi, they just want to force the verse to agree with their contradictory ahadith!

Brother, Sunni hadiths mentioning that the feet must be wiped have been narrated by several Sahabah also. Let me show you a few examples. This is the report of Imam 'Ali (1) from Musnad al-Humayd

That is what I find reasonable, if you disagree you can explain to me how it's contradicting.


The christians found it reasonable to introduce celibacy because they believed they could serve Allah better by doing that.

Furthermore it is not about reason. It is about belief in extra-Quranic texts that makes you willing to read something diffirent than actually stands there.

Research is done by authenticating and de-authenticating what is narrated. You are free to propose a system for doing that.

Yes but to de-authenticate a Quranic by verse by authenticating a narration is unbearable no matter how you present your point.

They were an example because that's what people usually claim, I also said anyone for further clarification.

You should talk for yourself and not for other people so much.

Only when one does not take the Quran as highest authority.

If prophet Isa told them to do that, then it is reasonable, if they invented it themselves then it's not reasonable. It would only be unreasonable in both cases if the book of Allah specifically told them not to do that.

I still don't see how that is different from washing your mouth, ears etc. Only if you do something that neglects wiping your feet, then you would have a point.

No, anyone who believes the two statements are not contradicting each other.

I don't talk for other people by stating what other people say. Do you talk for the Imams if you quote them?

Again, there is no contradiction as far I can judge. Can you please show me?

Well did Allah told you to wash or to wipe your feet?

May I take a small detour please?

Tell me honestly your personal opinion, do you think you invalidate your wudu if you decide one day to wash your feet, because they are more dirty than other days, so not because of any narration of the Prophet or any religious law, just because you feel like it. Are you contradicting the Qur'an?

Maybe I misunderstood, you said "You should talk for yourself and not for other people so much." in response to " They were an example because that's what people usually claim, I also said anyone for further clarification." What did you mean and what did you think I said with my statement?

Well if that would happen I would do it before my wudhu and not consider it to be a part of it and it would be the same case as washing my armpits first if they would become moist on a hot and sunny day. 

And let's be honest. If you are dirty because of any reason no matter if it are limbs regarding wudhu or other body parts you will first clean yourself and then start the wudhu.

If to wipe your feet means to clean your feet than to wipe is not sufficient and that would refute your argument which is based on your reason right away.

To become partially clean (meaning to wash certain parts of the body) is a consequence of doing wudhu but to purify oneself has a much more deeper meaning and is about obedience, spirituality and many more.

And if you do it during your wudu, is it then invalidated?

Also, can the Prophet prescribe that you should wash your armpits as part of wudu?

No, I dont want to get in a discussion about definitions. I concede every point and accept the shia point of view. To wipe means to wipe and doesn't mean cleaning.

Only when it replaces wiping. Wiping is wiping. Not washing.

The Prophet s.a.w. would transmit all Allah wants us to do. 

I don't understand your question anyway. I don't know the wisdom and the reason behind the wudhu why we only should wash the arms up to the elbows and not the entire arm to the armpit for example. 

It's a decision from Allah and I don't question why this and why not that so that is a discussion I do not wish to enter.

Well, unfortunately you can't avoid it. Where is the prescription by Allah to wash (or wipe) your private parts as part of wudu? Or do you only do that when you are in a state of janabah?

The question is, can the Prophet prescribe you to do something in your wudu without being explicitly stated by the Qur'an

To wash your private parts after visiting the lavatory is an act you do before you start your wudhu.

I don't know who told you that it can be a part f wudhu but now you're ridiculing yourself.

Forget about terms, where does the Qur'an talk about wudu? Is it a religious obligation or not?

That's another issue. We are discussing the issue changing the act of wiping into washing.

No it isn't, I fail to see the significant difference. That would mean he can prescribe you to wash your shins, but can't prescribe you to wash your feet, that would be unreasonable.

Ok, but it seems this is overlooked, the Prophet can prescribe you to do something without it being explicitly stated in the Qur'an, so he can tell you to wash your feet as well.

An addition which is not obligatory for an extra reward, yes.

An act to replace an act prescribed in the Quran, no.

Washing your private parts is not for extra reward, it is an obligation

You don't replace anything, I really don't understand this argument. How does washing result in a neglect of wiping?

I am talking about the issue to wipe and not to wash.

Because the Prophet gave us the instruction to wash our feet (according to those narrations) and that is an obligation that is not specifically stated in the Qur'an. And it's not instead, you still wipe them if you wash them.

The point is that the Prophet can prescribe things that are not specifically stated in the Qur'an. If we agree on this, I don't see how your question is relevant.

This is about what do after visiting a lavatory and what to do when in a state of Janabah. Two diffirent situations.

While the last step of wudhu according to the Quran which is to wipe the feet while you claim it is to wash the feet is about one action and the replacement of that action with another one.

The Fatha and kasra is with regards if a portion or a whole of subject is be wiped or washed. In the case of "head" it is part of it, however, the next subject is interesting in that it says "from feet to ankle", that means from the feet to ankle, it all has to be wiped. Not part of it, like the head.

What has that to do with your example of going to the bathroom and having sexual intercourse or doing those things that cause someone to enter the state of janabah?

I don't see them differently. In both cases the Qur'an provides instructions that are extended by the Prophet. In one case, the extension is in action, in the other the extension is in the range of applicability. I don't consider this difference significant for the discussion, honestly.

One should definately wash and clean their feet before Salat,specially if your feet are stinky or unclean before wudhu. How ever washing the head and feet is not part of the wudhu.

Allah has used two different words first ghasala, which means wash, which is used for face and hands, then uses a separate word for the feet and head, as masaah.

Ghusl ( wash ) is an act done with a couple of handful of water, but masaah which is wipe just requires your hands to be damp from the wetness of the water.

You cannot wipe your privates for cleaning or do ghusl janaba with only hands from dampness or wetness from water. You need a handful , which is ghusl.

If it were only to be wash ( ghasalah ) Allah would not use ( masaah ) seperately for head and feet.

It is only common sense to use, one word for all instead of separating it with another word which has a totally different meaning.

If you do, then it's hard to conclude not to wash them. In any case, if you wash them, you wipe them so you never contradict the Qur'an.

According to your twisted logic, when the Qur'an commands you to WIPE your feet, you can fulfill that command by instead WASHING them. And you think that makes you look responsible and sincere?
