Wudhoo Water on Every Part


When I am doing wuzu I wash the face and hands when I wash my face then my hands, my hand have already become wet because of washing my face when I put water on my hands to wash it is it necessary that the water completely overcome the water that had become wet (when washing my face)?

Will my wuzu be valid if it didn’t and will I have to mention that it (the water when washing my face) is also part of the washing of hand? i follow ayatullah sistani


Salaam Alaykum.

According to the rulings of Ayatullah Sistani, the parts like face and two hands can be wet before performing wudhoo. where you need to be careful is when wiping the head and feet. the parts that are wiped on the head and two feet need to be dry or if they have a little bit of moisture, then the water required to wipe over these places needs to be more than the very little moisture present.
