1. After ghusl, I noticed some small dirt on my feet but I’m not sure it came after ghusl or before. Is my ghusal valid?

2. I repeated the ghusal but I accidentally left out a very small (thread size) dead skin which if I observed it came close to a very small part of living skin. I poured water on top of it without scrubbing and I’m not sure if water will go to the closed parts of the skin. I realised this after praying and I didn’t know that I just need to wash only the dead skin to complete my ghusl. So one day after, I completed the ghusl by washing the dead skin area. Was my ghusal valid even I washed it after a day?



1. The ghusal is valid.

2. If you are not sure, then regard your ghusal to be complete.

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