salaam `alaykum,

In washing the face, do you use one hand or two? Does it matter which direction the washing is done in (Twelvers for instance say that one must begin at the top and only go in a downward motion). Does direction matter with the washing of the arms (again Twelvers say that you must begin at the elbow and go downward, the reverse nullifying the wudu).

In wiping the head in the wudu per Zaydi fiqh, does one do so with the remaining wetness leftover from the washing of the arms, or do you take new water, shake them, and then wipe with that? Does one begin with the forepart of the head then go to the end of it, and then go from the end back to the forepart? Are the fingers interlocked in doing so? And is the wiping of the ears done in the same motion, or are they done afterwards?

For the washing of the feet, does it matter whether you start at the toes or the ankles? And is it requires to run ones hands and fingers over the feet and toes, or does it suffice if the water is run over it from its source?

wa alaykum as salaam.

Thank you for your question! Instead of answering your questions point by point, I would instead post a video with a sheikh performing wudu according to the Zaydiya. Hopefully this helps more!

And Allah knows best!

JazakAllah khayran, that's helpful.

So when the shaykh is doing masH on his head, I noticed he was only wiping with the forefingers and thumbs (and what is between them). Is this how it's supposed to be done, or was he just doing it this way (i.e. it's allowed but not necessary)? Say someone instead used all of their fingers and their palms as well, would this also be correct?

Thank you for your question!

The way that the sheikh does it is deliberate. One can also use all of the fingers as you mentioned.

And Allah knows best!

One further clarification, is new water being used for the wiping of the ears, or is still using the same water that was taken for the wiping of the head?

Thank you for your question! According to the well-known hadith of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him and his progeny, ((Ears are a part of the head)), the ears are to be wiped using the wet hands after wiping the head since they are included. That is to say that the fingers are to not be rewetted.

And Allah knows best!
