Performing Ghusl While Intending Ghusl and Ablution at the Same Time
Fatwa No: 83997

Question

After performing Ghusl is there a need to do ablution (Wudu)?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

If a person performs Ghusl (ritual bath) and intends to perform the Ghusl with Wudu (ablution), and performs Ghusl with this intention, then it is sufficient for him; i.e., he does not need to perform ablution after Ghusl.

However, it is better to perform Wudu and then perform Ghusl as the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) used to do.

Allah knows best.
