The threshold of washing in wuḍū’ by immersion

Q: In doing wuḍū’ by immersion, is it permissible to submerge the face and the hands into the water more than two times?

A: For wuḍū’ by immersion one may submerge the face and the hands only twice into the water. It is obligatory for the first time, permissible for the second time, and impermissible for more than that. Regarding the hands, in the given wuḍū’, one should intend washing for wuḍū’ when bringing them out of water in order to make it possible to use their wuḍū’ water for wiping.
