2. will wearing a contraceptive patch ( which adheres to the skin ) make gusl valid? It must be noted that taking it off before the intended time shall make gusl invalid.
The contraceptive pill, wearing it and removing it does not make Ghusl compulsory.
However, if Ghusl becomes compulsory, the patch must be first removed in order for the Ghusl to be valid.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
