How an Ear Piercing Should Be Washed in Ghusl?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: Assalam alaykum,

What lengths does a person need to go in order to ensure that water has reached their ear piercing?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

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

No, you do not need to stick an earring or the like into the piercing to ensure water gets there. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]

However, you should strive to wash and rub the area, and this is sufficient. Ignore misgivings.

And Allah alone knows best.

في مراقي الفلاح: وكذا يجب تحريك القرط في الأذن لضيق محله والمعتبر غلبة الظن لإيصال الماء ثقبه فلا يتكلف لإدخال عود في ثقب للحرج والقرط بضم القاف وسكون الراء ما يتعلق في شحمة الأذن
