How Do I Perform Sunna Ghusl?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani


How do I perform sunna ghusl?

The sunna ghusl begins with (1) washing one’s private parts; (2) washing away any filth on the body; (3) performing a full wudu—clothed, with all its sunnas—and then (4) washing one’s body three complete times, beginning with the head each time, rubbing at least once [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]. In doing so, intend to follow the beautiful example of the Beloved Messenger of Allah (peace & blessings be upon him & his folk), and to seek the Pleasure of Allah.
