In some cases ablution is not mandatory but it is recommended as the person is in his best state when he has performed the ablution. These situations include; reciting Quran, sleeping, or before each prayer. 

When ablution is recommended

1-Before glorifying Allah or reciting the Qur’an, because a person is in his best situation when he has performed the ablution.

2-Before every prayer. The Prophet (peace be upon him) always did that,

:as reported by Anas

‘The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to perform the ablution before every prayer.’

This means that even when he had already performed an ablution that was still valid.

3-A person who is in the state of ceremonial impurity (i.e. janabah) is recommended to perform the ablution if he wants to have a second intercourse, or sleep, or eat or drink. 

:Abu Sa'id al-Khudri reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said

‘If any of you has had sexual intercourse with his wife and wants a second, he is recommended to perform the ablution first.’
