as salam shiekh,
I would like to ask u is it essential to wash both the front and the back part during every wudu …with water every time wudu is fard on us? I follow the ahnaf .
wa `alaykum salam,
Allah’s Messenger (s) said: “The Salaat (prayer) of a person who does Hadath (passes urine, stool or wind) is not accepted until he performs (repeats) the Wudhu (ablution).” [Bukhari]
“O you who believe! When you intend to offer prayer, wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows, lightly rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to the ankles. If you are in a state of Janaba, purify yourselves (bathe your whole body).” [Surah al-Maidah: Ayat 6]
