Wiping the neck is not a prescribed part of wudoo’

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it a prescribed part of wudoo’ to wipe the neck or is it not mentioned in the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

There is no proof in either the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) that wiping the neck is part of wudoo’, so it is not a prescribed part of wudoo’.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
