Concerning wiping the face after supplication
Question:

Is there any proof from the Sunnah about wiping the face after making supplication?
Answer:

As for the raising of the hands during the supplication, then there are many authentic ahaadeeth which have come relating to that, and as for the wiping of the face; then there are two hadeeth pertaining to it, but neither of them establishes clear proof for it.
