Head moisture and that of the face are mixed

Q: Does wuḍū’ become void if the moisture of the hand comes into contact with that on the face while wiping the head?

A: As it is obligatory that wiping of the feet is done with the palms’ moisture which remains from the wuḍū’ water, one should not touch the top of the forehead with the hand while wiping the head in a manner that the hand’s moisture comes into contact with the moisture on the face. This is to prevent the hand’s moisture, needed for wiping the feet, from being mixed with that on the face.
