Masah of Beard

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askmufti.co.za
Q: When making whudu, when does one make masah of the beard and what is the correct way?

A. Wash the face thrice. Thereafter take a little water in the palm of the right hand. Rub this water in the beard below the chin. Thereafter push the fingers through the beard beginning from below the chin going outwards. (Note that this is called Khilaal and not Masah.)

The following words can be said when making Khilaal of the beard:

هٰكذا اَمَرَنِىْ رَبِّىْ

(Piyaare Nabi Ki Piyaari Sunnatein P8)

An alternate method:
Without using fresh water, run the fingers through the beard with the palm of the right hand towards the throat
