Ruling 693

Based on obligatory precaution, the forehead and the back of the hands must be wiped from top to bottom [i.e. the forehead must be wiped in a direction towards the eyebrows and above the nose, and the back of the hands must be wiped in a direction towards the fingertips]. These actions must be performed one after the other, and if there is a delay between performing them such that it cannot be said that one is performing tayammum, the tayammum is invalid.
