Is istinjaa’ necessary each time one does wudoo’?


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


Praise be to Allah.

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.
