  • What is Wudu? Is that like Voo-Doo? Don't laugh, I'm serious. I've never heard of Wudu before.

  • Anonymous 5:04 PM (and I believe you are probably one and the same as the OP), your lack of wit is annoying. If you have nothing to add, simply don't post.

    Wudu is the ritualistic washing that a Muslim does before prayer.

  • lawmom623, Are you just rude b/c you think you know everything? Your rudeness is annoying to me, Us moms come on here and have the right to ask question that we don't know the answer, and if you don't like it do come on, don't respond, mustly don't dog a person b/c she doesn't know something. What is up with you? Having a bad day????? Are you rude to everyone that don't act like you?

  • yes the salah prayer we do wudu + ( acts of worshIp) performed at set times

    making dua + talking to god asking for things asking forgiveness saying bismillla ( in the name of god) before we eat similar to that christian concept of prayer we dont wash up before
    does that answer all of your questions Muslims have 2 types of " prayers"
