Drying one’s body before washing the feet in ghusal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If after I washed everything in ghusl, before I washed my feet, I momentarily stopped to dry my hair and body. This was for a few seconds and I don’t think I completely dried my hair and body with the towel because I was afraid of invalidating my ghusl. Then afterwards I washed my feet. Is my ghusl valid?


A: Yes.

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