Something stuck in one’s tooth during ghusal

Q: If during gusul e janabat I have something in my tooth cavities that can’t be got rid off easily, will it make my fard of washing the mouth incomplete? Is the filling of the mouth fully with water fard or washing the teeth as well? What if I have my teeth filled medically (ionic filling)?


A: If it is smaller than the size of a chick pea, the gusal will be valid. Gargling the mouth is sufficient.

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