Washing Body Parts Three Times in Wudū
Question asked by .
Answered by Dr. Shehzad Saleem

When we make Wudū, we wash some of our body parts three times. Why are we advised to wash a part of our body three times each? Can we wash it more than three times?


We can wash the specified body parts any number of times during Wudū. The actual directive is to wash the parts thoroughly and completely1. Since washing a body part three times generally cleans it thoroughly, this number has been specified.
