Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaykum,

Does entering the finger into the vagina necessitate a ritual bath?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that you are in the best of health and faith, insha’Allah.

No, entering the finger into the vagina does not necessitate a ritual bath (ghusl).

What necessitates it is the entrance of the tip of the male organ into the front or rear of another person.

And Allah alone gives success.

في مراقي الفلاح: ( و ) منها ( توارى حشفة ) هي رأس ذكر آدمي مشتهى حي احترز به عن ذكر البهائم والميت والمقطوع والمصنوع من جلد والأصبع وذكر صبي لا يشتهى اهـ.
