Method of washing arms in Wudhu…what is the preferred method?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

When I am washing my arms in Wudhu I first wash my left arm with my right hand ONCE, then do the same for the left arm, I then cup some water in my right hand and pour it over my arm THREE times and then do the same for the left arm. I was wondering if this is a permissible method for washing the arms, if not what is the preferred method?


In Wudhu, the hands must be washed only till the elbows (elbows included).

The arms do not have to be necessarily washed in Wudhu.
