f:696 -    Splashing water on face in Wuzu
Country : Hyderabad, India,
Name : Abdul Sami Khan
Question:     In summer season, people try to avoid the heat as much as they can. In summer if cold water is available for Wuzu, then it is very comforting. But some people splash water on their faces. Other people who are present do not like it. Is it right to do so?
............................................................................
Answer:     Splashing water on the face while making ablution (Wudhu) is Undesirable (Makruh).  Because of this, water might be spilled on to the other people making their ablutions there.  As mentioned in Fatawa A'alamgiri, Vol 1. Kitaab Ut Taharah.

Translation:  Among the Undesirables (Makroohaat) of ablution, splashing water on to the face is also included.

Thus, we should avoid such an act.

And Allah Most High knows best.
