Questions on Wudhu

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Assalam u Alaikum
Can wudhu be done in a bathroom/shower, as Ghusul is done in a bathroom?

Also, if a woman does NOT need to perform Ghusul, but showers/bathe/ washes with water, all areas of the body excluding the head and hair, is wudhu still necessary?

As Salaam Alaikum.

  • Yes, wudhu can be done in a bathroom/shower. One must however, ensure that there is no unclean/dirty water settled in the bathroom which can touch one’s feet while making wudhu.
  • In the case you have mentioned, it will still be necessary for the woman to perform wudhu since she has left out the Masah (wiping) of the head which is compulsory in wudhu. The best way is to first do a complete wudhu where Masah of the head will be done, and after this, one can wash herself completely with water excluding the head/hair.

And Allah Knows Best.
