Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Salaam. I completed my ghusal e ehtalaam but I forgot to clean my belly button and inside my ears. Should I redo my ghusal again or am I clean?




In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


It is incumbent on a person to wash both his belly button and ears when performing fardh ghusl.[1]


Only Allah SWT alone knows best.
