There is a Hadith which states, ‘Whoever makes wudu when he is in the state of purity [i.e he has not broken the previous wudu], ten good deeds will be recorded for him.’
Is it authentic?
This Hadith is recorded in Sunan Tirmidhi, Sunan Abi Dawud and Sunan Ibn Majah.
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 61, Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 63, Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 512)
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith weak. The Hadith is suitable to quote as is the case with Hadiths of this nature.
(Also see: Footnotes of Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah on Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 53)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
