Wiping Face after Wudhu

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za

Q: Is it sunnat to not wipe your face after wudhu?

A: Hadhrat Aa’ishah (Radhiyallaahu Anhaa) narrates that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) had a cloth which he used after Wudhu (Tirmidhi V1 P89).

Hadhrat Maymoonah (Radhiyallaahu Anhaa) says that once she presented a cloth to Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam) but he did not take it, instead he brushed the water off with his hands(Bukhaari V1 P267).

So both are proven in the Sunnah. It also depends on the individual’s choice, temperament, health and season.

Allah Ta’aala knows best.
