Hadrat Abu Haurairah (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that the Messenger of ALLAH said: O Abu Hurairah! When you perform ablution, say Bismillah -Wal- Hamdo Lillah (The result would be that) so long as this ablution would continue (i.e. one would remain in a state of purity), the Kiramun Katibeen (recording angles) would continue to write good deeds in his name. [Mu’jim Sagir – Tabarani, Ma’rif -ul- Hadis]

Hadrat Laqit bin Sabirah (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated that he asked the Messenger of ALLAH to tell him about ablution (i.e. tell me the specific things which I should take care of in ablution) and he said: “Perform ablution completely (there should be no laxity) and (the second is that) let the water run between the fingers and toes, and (the third is that) snuff up water freely cleaning the nostrils fully unless you are fasting (i.e. during fast snuff up water lightly). [Ma’rif -ul- Hadis, sunan Abu Dawud, Timizi]

The messenger of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) often used to perform ablution by himself and occasionally some one would help him. [Zadul Ma’ad]
