Sufficing on the faraaidh of ghusl

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a person fulfils all the fardh of ghusl that is gargling the mouth three times, making water reach the soft bone of nose three times and washing the body thoroughly such that no part remains dry, is the ghusl valid or the sunnats of ghusl have to be performed too? Does skipping the sunnats render ghusl invalid. Also one of my cousins told me that ghusl means wetting the entire body. If this is so then why does ghusl have faraaidh?


A: The ghusl is valid.

His definition is incomplete.

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