Forgetting to make the niyyah for ghusal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I would also like to know. If I showered from head to toe with the intention of performing ghusl but I forgot to say the niyyah. Do I need to make ghusl again or can I perform my salaah without redoing my ghusl?


A: You do not need to repeat the ghusal. The ghusal is valid.

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