Salam Alaikum,

I have a few questions on wudu.

So my hair is a little wavy so the hair at the top of my forehead would curve down onto my forehead and back up when combed to the side (like this symbol~). Some of this hair gets wet when wiping my face. Does this become a problem when doing the masih of the hair later on since the hair at the start of the forehead is wet? If so, how would I do wudu since the hair always gets wet no matter how much I try to avoid it?
 

Also let’s say someone has forehead that’s shaped like an M. Are the corners considered apart of the forehead that needs to be wiped when wiping the face or it is only where the forehead starts at the bottom?

 

Thank You!

Salaam alaykom

If you imaginarly your top.of head into four courters with as a example a triangle with with top in the facing towards back of your head. This is the area you must wipe with in.  Wiping within that is sufficant on your hair which is in that area or skin in that area. You may wipe whatsoever is called a wipe even if with one finger. 

If you have hair that extends from That area to outside of it make sure to wipe on the hair close to the head or skin like hair line. 

If you do get water on the lower part of the hair line you have two options

1: you may quickly dry it with a towel or rag before wiping there without you arm or wetness on hands drying up. 

2: if you did get wetness from that part on your hand by mistake you can use another part of your palm or another finger etc that didn't get that wetness on it to wipe your right foot. 

May Allah bless you

Fee Aman Allah

salam brother first of all you should never ever act on your doubt, understand how to properly do wudthu and do it with certainty.

Ruling 298. Someone who frequently doubts about the acts of wuḍūʾ and its conditions – such as the water being pure and not being usurped – must not give heed to his doubts.

Ruling 299. If someone doubts whether his wuḍūʾ has become void or not, he must treat it as still being valid. However, if after urinating one does not perform istibrāʾ and performs wuḍūʾ, and after performing wuḍūʾ some fluid is discharged about which he does not know whether it is urine or something else, his wuḍūʾ is void.

Ruling 235. In wuḍūʾ, it is obligatory to wash (ghasl) the face and the arms, and to wipe (masḥ) the front part of the head and the upper part of the feet.

Ruling 236. The length of the face that must be washed is the area from the top of the forehead where the hair grows to the bottom of the chin; and the breadth of the face that must be washed is the area that is covered by the tip of the middle finger to the tip of the thumb. If even a small amount of this area is not washed, the wuḍūʾ is invalid; and if one is not certain of having washed this area completely, he must also wash a little extra around this area in order to be certain.

Ruling 237. If someone’s face or hand is smaller or larger than normal, he must observe the amount that people with a normal sized face and hand wash, and he must wash the same amount. And if hair grows on one’s forehead, or, if one does not have hair on the front part of his head, he must wash the same amount of his forehead that people with normal foreheads wash.

Ruling 248. After washing both arms, one must wipe the front part of his head with the wetness of the water that has remained on his hand. And the recommended precaution is that one should wipe with the palm of his right hand and that he should wipe from top to bottom [i.e. in a direction towards his forehead].

Ruling 249. The area that must be wiped is the front quarter of the head, i.e. the quarter immediately above the forehead. It is sufficient to wipe any part of this area and to any extent, although the recommended precaution is that the length of the wiping should be at least the length of one finger, and the width of the wiping should be at least the width of three fingers joined together.

Ruling 250. It is not necessary that the wiping of the head be on its skin; rather, it is also correct (ṣaḥīḥ) to wipe the hair on the front of one’s head. However, if the length of someone’s hair at the front of his head is so long that if, for example, he was to comb it, it would fall onto his face, or it would reach other parts of his head, then he must wipe the roots of the hair. And if he gathers the hair which falls on his face, or which reaches the other parts of his head, at the front of his head and then wipes it, or, if he wipes the hair that has come to the front part of his head from other parts of his head, then such a wiping is invalid.
