We have a huge refugee population at our school from Africa such as Sudan or Somalia.
I am assuming the girls are Muslim because they wear the veils and cover their whole body.
I don't know if it is a cultural thing, but they will straight up wash their faces, place there feet on the counters and sinks and start washing them lol with napkins that they wet with water and soap.
At first I thought it was because they were hot in the veils but I heard veils are actually made out of very light fabric and I've seen them do it on days that are cold..
Sooo what's up with this? lol
Can any Muslim people explain?
Not hatin' just trying to understand!
Please NO racist comments!
They will be REPORTED!

okay here you go
am a Muslim girl and ill explain
in our religion we have 5 main prayers a day and because when we pray we stand in front of god so we should be in the most perfect image regarding our image our cleanness and every thing
so before praying we should wash and its called (wadouaa)
and wadouaa is 9 step
we start by washing our hands 3 time
then mouth 3 times
then nose 3 times
then face 3 times
then our hands till the elbow 3 times
then we just like eras on our hair once
then clean our ears
and last we wash our legs
and that's it :D
so we are ready to pray
and by the way this is for girls and guys we all do the same process before praying
