Doubting about washing one’s body completely in ghusal

Q: I have a doubt that the fard ghusl I made that day I forgot to soap inside the anus. Normaly I soap then rinse etc so now I don’t know if my
ghusl is done since they say you can’t judge on doubt but you can on certainty. If you are certain you missed it then redo it if your are not certain leave it. Is this the right way to do it? If not can you explain jazakullah.


A: If you are not entirely certain of water reaching then consider yourself to have completed the ghusal.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
