Washing the beard in wudhu

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Does a full sunnah length beard have to be completely wet during wudu?


A: If the beard is thick and dense then it is compulsory wash the face and beard. However it is not compulsory to ensure that the water reaches the inner portion of the beard and the skin of the face.

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