Then perform the following sequential acts of wudu’:

1.  Wash your hands up to the wrist three times, then

2. rinse your mouth with water swishing the water in mouth and spitting it out three times, then

3. wash the inside of the noses by inhaling water and then exhaling it three times, then

4. wash the entire face three times, then

5. wash your right hands up to the elbow three times while combing through the fingers of the right hand with the fingers of the left hand, then

6. wash your left hand up to the elbow three times while combing through the fingers of the left hand with the fingers of the right hand , then

7. wipe over the head with wet hands from the front of the head to the nape of the neck and back to the front once (wet the hands for this wiping by putting water on them from the water container and then shaking off any excess water), then

8. wipe the inside of the ears along their folds and creases with wet index fingers and then wipe the outside of the ears with wet thumbs, starting from the bottom of the ears moving towards and ending at the top (wet the fingers for this wiping by putting water on them from the water container and then shaking off any excess water), then
