Having a ghusal while naked

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a person has a wet dream and in the surat of taking a ghusul, should your half body be covered, or if you don’t have cloth to cover your half body and is it possible to take ghusul in naked condition, please janab let me know.


A: If you are taking ghusal in a place which is concealed from people (e.g. the bathroom), it is permissible to have ghusal while being naked, though wearing a lungi or a cloth to cover the satar area is better.

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