Q: In wudhu I wet my hands and immediately pass them over my face. My whole face becomes thouroughly wet and I do this three times. However I haven’t been cupping the water or splashing on my face. Is this sufficient?
A: No. Wetting the hands is insufficient. Cupping the water and pouring it on the face is important.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
