Washing one’s ear piercings during ghusal

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Until now I did not turn my nose piercing and ear piercing holes during ghusl and wudu.

Would all my prayers since I got my nose piercing (about 8 months ago) be invalid as I did not turn my nose stud/jewellery so water can reach the hole during ghusl and wudu.


A: If you are not sure whether the water has reached or not you do not have to repeat those namaaz. For the future exercise caution. Ignore all stray thoughts.

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