Question:I wanted to know if it is okay for us to do the masaah (wiping of the head) twice so that we are confident that water has reached the roots of the hair ( incase of long hair). Similarly, can we do the masaah of the feet ( wiping of the feet) twice to ensure that it is done properly ?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No. Repeating the wiping is not okay, and you do not need to reach the water to the roots.
In case of long hair, all you need to do is disperse the hair from the middle of the head, and scan the difference place.
Question:I have a problem of eczema on my knees. Due to this, during the Sujood in Salah, a few drops ( lesser than a dirham) come out of my knees onto a bandaid that I tie on my knees before every salah. However, along with the blood, i have seen that small amount of water also comes out from my knees. I am not sure how this happens but I presume that it is because of taking a bath before prayers. However I do dry my knees properly before salah. Does the water coming out with the blood from my knees cause a problem and would I have to wash my knees before every prayer ? The water and blood come out on the bandaid tied around my knees

Ayatollah:Ayatollah Sistani

Answer: You do not need to do so.
