Doubting whether one rinsed one’s mouth and gargled one’s nose in Ghusal

Q: If a person did not know the fardhs of ghusl for years and would just take a shower when needed ghusl, and he may have gargled mouth and blew nose in the shower but don’t know 100%, will the salaah, saum etc of all these years have to be repeated?


A: If he is not sure whether he rinsed his mouth and gargled his nose, he does not have to repeat the passed years Salaah, etc.

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