Wudhu makes you wealthy

Fatwaa ID: 783

Salam alaykum.
I saw a lecture where one if the ulema says if you want to be wealthy keep a state of wudu. Is this from hadith ?

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

I was unable to find any hadith expressly stating the above. However, this may be based on the meaning of the du’aa that we are encouraged to recite after performing wudhu,

اللَّهمَّ اغفِر لي ذَنبي، ووسِّع لي في داري، وبارِكْ لي في رِزقي.
O Allaah! Forgive me my sins, make, expand for me my abode and place barakah for me in my sustenance.

A person who tries to always be in the state of wudhu would make wudhu multiple times a day and thus recite this du’aa multiple times a day as well, thereby asking Allaah Ta’aala for barakah in his wealth and rizq.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
