7-Washing the hands to the elbows three times, and start with the right, then the left.

8-Wiping on the head or some of it at once.

  • It is from 'Sunnah' to make water pass through the fingers during ablution.

  • It is from 'Sunnah' to make water pass through the beard -for men- when washing the face during ablution.

It is from 'Sunnah' to say this supplication after ablution: “I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. O Allah, make me among those who turn to You in repentance

and make me among those who are purified. Glory is to You, O Allah, and praise; I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but You. I seek Your forgiveness and turn to You inrepentance.”
