Is istinjaa’ necessary each time one does wudoo’?

Question

Does a person have to do istinjaa’ (wash the private parts with water) every time he wants to do wudoo’?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

Praise be to Allaah.

Istinjaa’ is not necessary each time a person wants to do wudoo’. It is essential after passing urine or stools, when a person must wash his private parts before doing wudoo’ for prayer.
