The Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said:
“Purify these bodies, may Allaah purify you, for there is no servant who spends the night in a state of purification except that an angel spends the night with him, in the garment which is closest to his body*, [and] he does not turn over at any time during the night except that the angel says, “O Allaah! Forgive Your slave for he went to sleep in a state of purification.”
(Saheeh al-Jaami, 3963, Al-Albaani said, “Hasan.” *Ref: Faid al-Qadeer, no. 5278.)

An Important issue!!
"I wish to remind myself and (all of) you about an important issue, which is:
All of us make wudhu when we desire to pray, but the majority of the time the people merely do so to establish a condition of worship [i.e. the prayer]. And there is nothing wrong with this for the goal is reached. But there is something greater and more complete than this:

Sheikh Yahyaa Al-Hajoorie (May Allaah preserve him) mentions in his Risâla: “Explanation of Ayatul Wudhu’ that it was legislated a year before Hijrah.
The statement of Aalim Siddiq Hasan Khan رحمه الله:
“Wudhu is from the traits and special attributes of this Ummah.’(i.e. Wudhu is specific for the Ummah of Rasulullâh صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم .)
** Wudhu is a condition for the Salâh & Salâh is NOT accepted without Wudhu**

** (The Siwaak which is sometimes called the 'Miswak' is a cleaning tool taken from the Arak tree.)
Abi Huraira (recorded in Ahmed/Maalik) that the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said:
"If it wasn't to cause difficulty to my nation I would have ordered them to use the Siwaak for every ablution."
[Saheeh Al-Jaami' (5319), Sheikh Albaani رحمه الله said it is saheeh].
Imaam Nawai mentions in Saheeh Muslim that, “the siwaak is Sunnah (Mustahab: Highly recommended) and Not Waajib.”
Benefits of Siwaak - (Muslim)

Al-Bara’a Ibn Aazib (Bukhari), the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said:
“If you have come to your bed then make Wudhu (perfect the Wudhu like that of salaah with all the conditions), then lie down on your right side and recites the following adkhar (making this his last speech), and if you die then, you would have died upon the fitrah.”
- اللّهُـمَّ أَسْـلَمْتُ نَفْـسي إِلَـيْكَ، وَفَوَّضْـتُ أَمْـري إِلَـيْكَ، وَوَجَّـهْتُ وَجْـهي إِلَـيْكَ، وَأَلْـجَـاْتُ ظَهـري إِلَـيْكَ، رَغْبَـةً وَرَهْـبَةً إِلَـيْكَ، لا مَلْجَـأَ وَلا مَنْـجـا مِنْـكَ إِلاّ إِلَـيْكَ، آمَنْـتُ بِكِتـابِكَ الّـذي أَنْزَلْـتَ وَبِنَبِـيِّـكَ الّـذي أَرْسَلْـت .

** From the signs of a believer is that he perfects his Wudhu **

It removes sins as recorded in the Hadeeth of Abu Huraira (Muslim #244) that the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said:
«إِذَا تَوَضَّأَ الْعَبْدُ الْمُسْلِمُ أَوِ الْمُؤْمِنُ فَغَسَلَ وَجْهَهُ، خَرَجَ مِنْ وَجْهِهِ، كُلُّ خَطِيئَةٍ نَظَرَ إِلَيْهَا بِعَيْنَيْهِ مَعَ الْمَاءِ أَوْ مَعَ آخِرِ قَطْرِ الْمَاءِ، فَإِذَا غَسَلَ يَدَيهِ خَرَجَ مِنْ يَدَيْهِ كُلُّ خَطِيئَةٍ بَطَشَتْهَا يَدَاهُ مَعَ الْمَاءِ أَوْ مَعَ آخِرِ قَطْرِ الْمَاءِ، فَإِذَا غَسَلَ رِجْلَيْهِ خَرَجَتْ كُلُّ خَطِيئةٍ مَشَتْهَا رِجْلَاهُ مَعَ الْمَاءِ أَوْ مَعَ آخِرِ قَطْرِ الْمَاءِ، حَتَّى يَخْرُجَ نَقِيًّا مِنَ الذُّنُوب»
“When the Muslim or the believing servant performs wudhu and washes his face, every sin that he looked at with his eyes will depart from his face with the water, or with the last drop of water. When he washes his hands, every sin that his hands committed will depart from his hands with the water, or with the last drop of water. When he washes his feet, every sin to which his feet took him will depart with the water, or with the last drop of water. until, he ends up sinless.”
Imaam an-Nawawi said in his explanation of this Hadeeth: ‘What is intended here is the minor sins and not major sins.’ The daleel for this is recorded below in Saheeh Muslim in the Hadeeth of ‘Salawaat al-Khams’ wherein the Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم said:

The Books used:
¬ Risaalah of Sheikh Yahya al-Hajoorie حفظه الله ‘Explanation of the 'Aayat-ul-Wudhu'. (5:6)
¬ Sheikh Abdur Rahman al-Aryaani - 'Book of Wudhu'
Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى says:
إِنَّ اللّهَ يُحِبُّ التَّوَّابِينَ وَيُحِبُّ الْمُتَطَهِّرِينَ
“Truly, Allâh loves those who turn unto Him in repentance and loves those who purify themselves...”
(Surah Al-Baqarah 2:222)
This is the daleel (evidence) that if one wants to obtain the love of Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى he must perform Wudhu. The above verse consists of two meanings:
Allaahسُبحانه وتعالى loves those who repent regularly / consistently. The Prophet صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم repented to Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى more than 70 to 100 times a day. So what about us?
With the love of Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى comes ‘Thawfeeq’.
