When should one make Khilaal of the fingers

Question ID: 26341


In your Publication Virtues of Wudhu on page number 17 under the heading Masah of Head you have written that To Make Khilaal of fingers before masah of the head is sunnat and not vice-versa. But again on page number 21 after Masah of the Nape under the heading Khilaal you are mentioning to do Khilaal of fingers immediately after Masah of Neck. Now this is confusing. When should one make Khilaal of the fingers. before Masah of the Head or after completion of Masah of the Neck. Kindly elaborate on this.

The correct sequence is:

1) Khilaal of the beard.

2) Masah of the whole head.

3) Masah of the ears.

4) Masah of the nape.

5) Khilaal of the fingers of both the hands.

In that order.
