Dear Brother / Sister,
Instead of washing the feet while making wudu, wiping on the foot covering with the wet hand in accordance with its rules is called mash. Mash on the foot covering is ease and permission provided for every Muslim, whether man or woman, by Islam. Mash on the foot covering can be carried out only while making wudu. Mash on the foot covering is not permissible while making ghusl. Mash on the foot covering is sunnah muakkadah. According to many hadiths, it is definite that the Messenger of Allah sometimes wore foot coverings and wiped on them while making wudu.
