1. It is a major wrong to delay the ghusl of Janabat until after sunrise as the angels of Mercy do not enter such homes where a person (male or female) delays the Fardh ghusl (compulsory bath). [Mishkat]

For that reason it is necessary to hasten in performing ghusl if one awakens after subh sadiq (true dawn). [Tirmidhi] This should be done so that fajr salaah can be read with jamaat.

  1. Wash both hands thrice with the intention of cleansing yourself of Hukmi Najasat.

  2. Any Najasat (filth) found on the rest of the body should then be washed off.

  3. Both the private parts should then be washed – even if you have not relieved yourself.

  4. Wudhu should then be made in the Sunnat method (although the feet may be washed after the ghusl is completed).

  5. Water should be poured thrice over the head, thrice over the right shoulder and thrice over the left shoulder.

  6. Ensure that the water reaches every part of the body – not forgetting the mouth and the nostrils.

  7. If a woman’s hair is plaited, she does not need to loosen it but she should ensure that the base of each and every hair is wet, otherwise her ghusl will be invalid.

Men who have long hair which they wear in plaits are not excused. They must loosen their plaits.

  1. It is mustahab (preferable) to clean the body by rubbing it. All body parts should be rubbed in this way to ensure that the water reaches every part.

  2. Rings, earrings etc. Should be rotated or removed to ensure that no portion is left dry.

  3. The navel and ears should be washed.

  4. Upon completion, confine yourself to a clean place and wash your feet – if they have not been washed after wudhu.

  5. After the ghusl it is Sunnat to either wipe the body dry, or to leave it wet, whilst making intention to practice upon a Sunnat.

  6. Dress as hastily as possible.

  7. If, after the completion of ghusl, you realise that a certain portion has been left dry, it is not necessary to repeat the entire ghusl. It will suffice to merely wash the dry portion.

  8. Wudhu does not need to be repeated in order to perform salaah or recite the Qur’an. The wudhu of ghusl will suffice.
