Is washing both openings(Istinjaa`) a must before every ablution?

Is washing both openings(Istinjaa`) a must before every ablution?

Answer:
Washing the front and back openings(Istinjaa`) is a must in case they have an impurity, but if they do not, there is no need for that, and Istinjaa` is not a condition for the validity of ablution.

This answer was collected from the official government Iftaa Department of Jordan.
