Q: It is said that
abstaining from drying or wiping off the water after finishing Wudu' (ablution) with a cloth, tissues, or the like, is a Sunnah (supererogatory act of worship following the example of the Prophet), as it is also after washing the hands before starting to eat with the hand. Is this so?
A: All praise be to Allah Alone, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, and his family and Companions.Abstaining from drying the hands or wiping the water off them after Wudu’ or before or after eating is not a Sunnah. In fact the matter here is open, and you may wipe or leave them wet as you please.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
