MAKING WUDHUU' BETWEEN 2 ACTS WITH ONE'S WIFE

When a Muslim man has had sexual intercourse with his wife in the legal manner and then wishes to return another time, he should first perform wudhuu', based on the statement of the Prophet :

 

"When one of you comes to his wife and then wishes to return another time, let him perform wudhuu' between the 2 times (In another version, the same wudhuu' which he performs for prayer) for verily, it will invigorate his return." [Muslim, Ibn Abi Shaibah and others].

 

BATHING IS PREFERABLE

Bathing, however, is preferable to merely making wudhuu' in such situations. Abu Raafi' narrates: "That the Prophet made the rounds of all his wives one night, bathing in the house of each one. He (i.e. the narrator) asked the Prophet:

 

"Couldn't you have just bathed once (i.e. at the end)?”

 

 The Prophet answered:

 

"This way is purer, cleaner and better". [Aboo Daawood, an-Nasaa'ee: Hasan in "al-'Ishrah", and others].
