Wiping the neck is not a prescribed part of wudoo’

Question

Is it a prescribed part of wudoo’ to wipe the neck or is it not mentioned in the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

There is no proof in either the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) that wiping the neck is part of wudoo’, so it is not a prescribed part of wudoo’.
