Wadu and gusal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

1- dose oil on body affects validity of gusal.

2- if not.. do i have to rub my body parts during wadu and gusal if i have oil on my skin….if i dont rub it is my gusal and wadu is valid ??


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Water penetrates oil, and so the Wudhu and Ghusl are valid.

But it is best to rub, so that you are sure that water goes everywhere.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best


Ismail Moosa (Mufti)


 (ولا يمنع) الطهارة (ونيم) أي خرء ذباب وبرغوث لم يصل الماء تحته (وحناء) ولو جرمه، به يفتى (ودرن ووسخ) عطف تفسير، وكذا دهن ودسومة (وتراب) وطين ولو (في ظفر مطلقا) أي قرويا أو مدنيا في الاصح بخلاف نحو عجين. (و) لا يمنع (ما على ظفر صباغ و) لا (طعام بين أسنانه) أو في سنه المجوف. به يفتى. وقيل إن صلبا منع، وهو الاصح (الدر المختار –  ج 1، ص 26)
