    Starting Ghusl without performing wudhu

    Question: Can I start ghusl (after having janabat) without performing wudhu? Is it mandatory to perform wudhu before ghusl?

    It is masnoon to perform wudhu before ghusl janabat. If a person performs ghusl janabat without performing wudhu, he will still attain purity. However, he will be deprived of the virtue of the sunnah of wudhu.
