Washing the area that remained dry after wudhu

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If during wudhu, one of the limbs was not washed properly (i.e. some portion of it remained dry), is it okay to just wash that area which remained dry at the end of wudhu? For example, some part of your face remained dry during wudhu. Then, at the end of wudhu, after washing your feet, you just washed that dry part of the face (and not the entire face). Is the wudhu valid and correct?


A: Yes, it is valid.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
