Thick Bearded Muslim and Wudu ~ If it is thick and the skin cannot be seen through it, the outer surface only has to be washed, but it is mustahabb to run the fingers through it.
Uthman ibn Affan reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, would run his fingers through his beard during ablution.
Al-Tirmidhi said, “According to this, the majority of the people of knowledge among the companions of the Prophet, and those after them, hold the opinion that fingers should be run through the beard. It was said by Al-Shafi’i. Ahmad said if one overlooks running his fingers through the beard, it is still permitted.”
