Ma’dhoor and masjid is far

Fatwaa ID: 257

Assalamu alaykum wrwb

If at Makkah Mukarramah or Madina Shareef where masjid is far, can one do wudu like 10 minutes before the salah so he can make it for jamat and sunnahs instead of having to do it every beginning of salah
For a ma’zoor


In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

No. It will not be sufficient for the ma’dhoor to make wudhu before the time. The wudhu of a ma’dhoor terminates with the ending of the salaah time. In the enquired situation, he may make wudhu at the masjid or he may carry a water bottle with him and make wudhu upon reaching.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
