Not taking Allah's name before making wudhu

Q: I came to know about the hadith of Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) that wudhu is not proper if we don't say Allah's name before wudhu. I didn't know about this. So I mostly made wudhu without saying Allah's name. Was my wudhu accepted and am I sinful?

A: Your wudhus have all been valid. Taking the name of Allah Ta`ala gives you an additional reward.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
