Fardh of washing the hands in wudhu

Q: Is the hands, including the wrist, included in the faraaidh of wudhu?

A: The farz is to wash the hands from the fingers till the elbows (i.e. including the elbows). Washing the hands till the wrists is sunnah at the beginning of the wudhu.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
