Do I Need to Repeat Ghusl After Sensing some Blood on the Nose?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Sufyan Qufi

Question

I was doing my ghusl and after I was done I did my wudu and then i wiped my nose with a towel and there was blood on it. Do I need repeat my ghusl again or no?

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

I pray this finds you in the best of states.

No, you don’t have to repeat your ritual bath (ghusl) after being affected by one of the invalidators of wudu. Bleeding only breaks your wudu and has no incidence on your ghusl even if this bleeding would happen while performing your ghusl.

Ghusl is only necessary after:

(1) Ejaculation

(2) Intercourse

(3) Menstruation

(4) Post-natal bleeding

And Allah knows best.
