Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

when you are taking wudu if you accidently wash more than 3 times is your wudu still valid/acceptable?

The wudu There is he sunnah and there is the wajeb Wajeb (a must and minimum) once each part. Sunnah is 3 as we all know. In all cases head and ears once.

sahih bukhari stated twice better than once, but 3 is the complete and end.

If a part was 're-washed cuz u felt it wasnt washed properly, then it's still valid. If by accident, then ensHAllah it's still valid. Remember that shaitan helps in making those accidents. So try your best not to.

Assalamalaikum dear,

Chapter 4. The book of Wudu

I: What is reported about wudu'

And the words of Allah the Almighty, "When you stand for the prayer, wash your faces and hands to the elbows and wipe your heads and wash your feet to the ankles." (5:6)

Abu 'Abdullah (i.e. al-Bukhari) said, "The Prophet made it clear that the obligation of wudu' is to wash each part once. He also did wudu' by washing two and three times, but not more than three." The people of knowledge dislike extravagance in it and for people to exceed what the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, did.

II: The prayer is not accepted without a state of purity

Abu Hurayra was heard to say that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "A prayer of someone in hadath is not accepted until he renewes wudu'." A man from Hadramaut asked, "What is hadath, Abu Hurayra?" He said, "Breaking wind silently or with a noise."

III: On the excellence of wudu', and on the excellence of those with white blazes on their foreheads and limbs from the effects of wudu'

It is related that Nu'aym al-Mujmir said, "I went with Abu Hurayra onto the roof of the mosque. He did wudu' and said, 'I heard the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say, "On the Day of Rising my community will be called 'those with white blazes on their foreheads and limbs' from the effects of wudu'. So whoever of you can increase the extent of the whiteness, should do so."'"

I would believe it is still valid, I think the Sunnah is to wash at least 3 times, but sometimes one might need to wash some more, so it would make sense for it to still be valid.
