Do wudhu in any order

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Can a person do wudu in any order, i mean does it have to start with the washing the right arm 3 times and so on? – this is because I made an mistake when doing wudu, i washed my feet before washing my arms and masah of the head and then i remembered and i washed my arms etc.

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


It is Sunnat Muakkadah (an emphasised sunnah) to do the wudhu in order.  It will be Makruh to do it in any other order.    (Maraqi Falah p.26)
