    Wa ʿalaykumusalām wa rahmatullahi wa barakātuhu,

    That is great that you are studying your method of wudhu! When we carefully study Hanafi works on our method of wudhu, we will be astonished at how many things we might be doing wrong.

    I vaguely remember hearing from a scholar or coming across a passage in one of the Hanafi Fiqh works that mentioned the kissing of the fingers before doing masah as an innovation and not part of the method of wudhu. You can reference Vol. 2 of Bahare Shari'at by Allama Mufti Amjad Ali Azami (rahmatullah alayh) for details on how to perform wudhu properly. (This act of kissing the fingers before masah is not mentioned there).

    As salaamu alaykum w rahmatullahi w barakatuhu all

    I recently was pondering on my method of wudu according to Hanafi texts and proofs. I came across the method of masah and found one particular action that I do, that is not listed anywhere. That is the kissing of the fingers before doing masah. I am not even sure where I picked up this action, I may have picked it up from an elder when I was young. I do come from a Sunni family, is this mentioned in Imam Ahmad Rida Khan's works or similar?

    I would appreciate if any light could be shed on this matter. If it is not proven anywhere I will cease doing this.

    jazakAllahu khayran.
