Q: I have been told that one can pour only two handfuls of water on the face during wudu’, and a third one will invalidate the wudu’, is that correct?
A: Washing wudu’ parts is obligatory for the first time and permissible for the second time. But it is not permissible to wash them for the third time. The criterion of ‘time’ is the intention. Therefore, if somebody pours two or more handfuls of water on his face as the first time, there is nothing wrong with it.
