Is Performing Wudu During Ghusl a Condition for the Ghusl To Be Valid?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Shaykh Yusuf Weltch


I have two questions. First, is it necessary to perform Wudu during Ghusl, and second what If I urinate between the ghusl? Does it invalidate my Ghusl? also, what If I urinate immediately after performing ghusl? Does it have any impact on my Ghusl Plz Do Answer


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful and Compassionate

Performing wudu just before the ghusl is an emphasized Sunna. The ghusl is valid if the entire body, mouth, and soft portion of the inner nose are washed. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]

Urinating during or after the ghusl does not invalidate the ghusl. The ghusl remains valid; however, one will need to perform a new wudu before engaging in prayer. [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]

Hope this helps
Allah knows best
