Ghusal after being intimate in the state of haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: A person has relations with his wife with a cloth inbetween during haiz, both climax. The husband obviously needs to make ghusl but should the wife also take a bath, or is it fine for her to stay in this state? Would the malaa’ika stay away from her in this state and return if she has a ghusl whilst still in haiz.


A: Ghusal is not fardh upon her. However if there is any impurity on her body, she should wash it off.

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