Wipe scarf wudu women

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Said Amru ibn Umayyah, "I saw the Messenger of Allah (saws) wipe over his turban and shoes (while doing wudu)."

Related by Ahmad, al-Bukhari and Ibn Majah.


Bilal reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "Wipe over your shoes and your head covering (while doing wudu)."

Related by Ahmad.


There is enough evidence in the authentic and established Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) at times would wipe over his turban or head-cover while doing the wudu. The scholars and jurists in Islam are unanimous in their opinion that if one, regardless of whether a man or a woman, were to wipe over their head-cover while doing the wudu it would suffice to fulfill the obligatory requirement of wiping the heads in wudu.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
