Answered by: Maulana Yusuf Khan




My friend said that we can perform non-fardh salaah (prayers) without wudhu. Is it true?



In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful




All prayers must be prayed with the condition of whudu being met. [1]


There is nothing indicating that there is a difference for prayers which are non-fardh etc. Therefore the statement is not true.



Only Allah knows best
