    While performing Ghusl (ritual shower), do we have to wash between the buttocks, and do we have to run our fingernails underneath each nail and each toenail?

  • Excessive use of water in taking bath Date: 12-6-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I am very fond of taking long hot showers, be it for the ritual bath or as a regular bath. I take long time to finish it and I enjoy it.

  • Whoever forgot washing body part during Ghusl is not obliged to wash it immediately Date: 12-4-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I know that if a person remembers not having washed a part of their body during Ghusl (ritual shower), they can wash it when they remember.

    Assalaamu alaykum. In Ghusl (ritual bath), I know that you have to rub the hair on the head and the beard in order to ensure that water reaches the skin underneath, but what about the short hair on the legs and the private parts? Is it sufficient to let water go over them or do you have to rub the hair in these areas too? Also, regarding the short hair.. More

  • Urinating while taking a bath in the bathtub Date: 17-2-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. One my friends told me that if you urinate while taking bath in the bathtub, then bad days will come and it prevents the increase of provisions. While taking a bath, sometimes we feel we need to pass urine, and the place is cleaned by flushing with strong water. In Islam, is it true that urinating while taking a bath is not allowed?.. More

  • Performing ghusl without washing the ears Date: 26-12-2015

    Assalaamu alaykum. I am a Hanafi, but I did not know that you had to wash your ears until today. Does this mean that all my previous ghusls (ritual shower) were invalid, and all my acts of worship based on those ghusls too?
