Assalamvalaikum brothers..... i wanted to clarify a doubt about using fashwash or soap while performing wazu?

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah preserve him) said:

Washing the hands and face with soap when doing wudoo’ is not prescribed in sharee’ah. On the contrary, it is a kind of obstinate and excessive zeal. It was reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Those who are obstinate and excessively zealous are doomed.” He said it three times.

If there is some kind of dirt on the hands that can only be removed by using soap or some other cleanser, there is nothing wrong with using it in this case, but under ordinary circumstances, using soap when doing wudoo’ is a kind of excessive zeal and bid’ah (innovation), so it should not be used. (Fataawaa Islamiyyah, 1/223)

The question was ., can one perform grand ablution then take a shower? At this point one has not done wudu for prayer .
