THE FOUR FARA’ID OF WUDU’

THE FOUR FARA’ID OF WUDU’

There are four Fard acts in wudu’. If any single one is omitted the wudu’ will not be valid.
They are:

1) Washing the face from the forehead to the lower portion of the chin and from the lobe of one ear to the lobe of the other. This must be done at least once (Washing thrice is Sunnah).

2) Washing both arms, including the elbows, once.

3) Wiping at least a quarter of the head with wet hands once. The Arabic word for this act is masah.

4) Washing both feet, including the ankles, once.

If any portion of the body mentioned above is left dry, the wudu’ will be invalid.
