السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته. While I take wudu I wipe my hair from the front to the back along with my ears 3times, I have researched it and they say do it only once, I did this technique even when doing ghusl, so now I am worried if I have been taking wudu wrong this whole time. Please any help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Salam and welcome to IslamSE the Q&A site about Islam. To learn more about our site and model consider taking the tour and checking our help center. I do assume you mean that you wipe over your head, as washing is not required for wudu'. I'm just a bit astonished that you do it along with your ears. This is the first time I hear this. – Medi1Saif Dec 10 '20 at 11:46
  • Yes sorry I mean wipe it with water not wash – Anonymous Dec 10 '20 at 11:51

The head and ears are to be wiped only once. Doing it 3 times would be haram so stay away from that but since you didn't know before, there is no sin or blame on you for that.

and Allah knows best

Ps: I said its Bidah but it is a sin only sorry

  • So can I wipe my hair and my ears at the same time while taking wudu – Anonymous Dec 10 '20 at 12:06
  • What do you mean, how would you do them simultaneously? – Muhammad Zohair Dec 10 '20 at 14:28
