Finding a food particle stuck on one’s tooth after performing ghusal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I brushed my teeth then I did ghusl. After that I felt there was some thing on the side of my tooth. I removed it with my finger and it was a piece of food but it was soft (may be a piece of chicken) on the side of my tooth but attached to the surface. Is my ghusal valid?


A: It is valid. If you are in doubt you may gargle your mouth again.

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