Inserting water in the nose when the nose is blocked

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: The other day I was making ghusl, but my nose was blocked with mucus. I was told that in ghusl you should sniff water so far that you feel a stinging type of sensation. Is this correct? Because my nose was blocked, I couldn’t feel the sensation because maybe the mucus didn’t let the water touch the inner parts of the nose.

A: Inserting water in the nose and rinsing the nose is sufficient.

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