Bismillahi Al-Rahmani Al-Rahim
Question For Lesson 03
Dear Musa, I was wondering whether you could please explain
the exact method, in terms of necessary and sunnah, of wiping the
ears during wudu'?
A quick hands on reply:
Necessary: getting the ears wiped by any means. Since ears are not
qualified, it is understood to mean the ears in general: inner and
outer. In Arabic, the ear is like a flower spread wide open: the
inner part faces us, the outer part faces the other way.
Sunnah: put your index and thumb on either side of the ear lobe
with the thumb behind and the index finger is in the ear channel.
Now slowly move your thumbs upwards along the base of the ear where
it connects to the skull. Try it a few times until your thumb
covers the entire area of the outer ear and your index finger
covers the entire area of the inner part.
And Allah knows best.
