Word of the Day: Ablution
Ablution is the act of washing or cleansing the body. Usually it refers to a religious rite, and it can also indicate the liquid used in the rite.
It was in this environment — tense and riddled with suspicion — that Anan says soldiers and police grabbed him, his father and several others at ablution before morning prayers. (USA Today)
