The Water Attributed to the Wuḍū’ Process

Q: During wuḍū’, may one shut the taps with the same hand one is washing?

A: This is unproblematic assuming it (the shutting of the taps) occurs before one completes the washing of the left forearm; however, after the completion of the left hand’s washing, assuming one’s hand comes into contact with something wet (such as the taps) thus causing the original ‘wuḍū’ water to blend with external non-wuḍū’ water (from the taps, post-completion of the left hand’s washing), in such cases wiping the head and feet with either (i) external non-wuḍū’ water or (ii) wuḍū’ water mixed with external water, is deemed void.
