The Sunnah method of making ghusal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. Kindly explain the full method of performing ghusal.

2. Is it Farz/Obligatory for us to make wudhu during Ghusal or not?



1. The Sunnah method of making ghusal is that one commences by washing the private areas. Thereafter one should make wudhu and then one should wash the entire body thrice. One will commence by washing the head thrice and thereafter by washing the right and left shoulder thrice. One should ensure that one gargles the mouth and rinses the nostrils while making wudhu as this is fardh in ghusal.

2. It is Sunnah.

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