Sometimes its very hard to perfom wudu at work as there are people consistently coming in and out of the rest room. Is it permissible to perfurm masah over head scarf whilst performing wudu?

Jazak Allah Khair


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

It is not permissible to make Masah on the head scarf. Similarly, masah on the turban, hat, Burqa and gloves are also not permissible (Nurul Idhah).

Masah quarter of the head (according to the Hanafis) is a compulsory act of Wudhu.

O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salât (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands (forearms) up to the elbows, rub (by passing wet hands over) your heads, and (wash) your feet up to ankles . (Surah Number: 5, Ayah Number: 6)

It is strongly required that women should avoid working in such a place where free mixing and intermingling of sexes takes place.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
