    Title: How to do ghusl

    Question: How do I make ghusl? Can you please tell me the steps. Normally what I do is take a shower with minimum water and wash and rub the areas on where is impurity. Thereafter I gargle my mouth 3 times and put water into my nose 3 times and blow it. After coming from the bathtub I wash my both feet into the sink. Please let me know if what I am doing is right or wrong.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 422/378/M=04/1440)


    The sunnah method of doing ghusl is that the person taking a bath should first of all wash both the hands up to the wrists. Then wash the private parts and any impurity if found on the body. Then make wudhu as done for salah. Thereafter pour water over right and left shoulders three times each then on head and over whole body. If water accumulates in the bathing place then the feet should be washed later, otherwise wash them at the time of starting ghusl. So it is mentioned in the book of Fatawa.
