Ruling 241

It is not obligatory to wash inside the nose or those parts of the lips and eyes that cannot be seen when they are closed. However, if a person is not certain that everything that must be washed has been washed, it is obligatory that he washes a little of those parts as well in order to be certain. Furthermore, with regard to someone who did not know this rule, if having performed wuḍūʾ he does not know whether he washed the required area or not, the prayers he performed with that wuḍūʾ are valid and it is not necessary for him to perform wuḍūʾ again for the next prayer.
