Giving ghusal to the deceased before making ghusal for haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: When my grandmother passed away, I gave her ghusal along with other women. But when she died, at that time my menstruation was completed (7 days) but I didn’t take a bath after period. Is it a sin and was her ghusal incomplete because of me?


A: The ghusl is valid but it is not appropriate to be administering the ghusl in this state.

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