Having doubts if one’s ghusal is complete

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I gargled once and put water in the nose soaped the bottom half then top half then rinsed is ghusl done? I am confused in my mind I think its
not done at all that I might have missed some place out as I was standing under the shower.


A: Do not unnecessarily entertain doubts. If you washed your entire body with gargling your mouth and rinsing your nose, the ghusal is valid.

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

اليقين لا يزول بالشك (الأشباه والنظائر 1/183)

الباب الثاني في الغسل  وفيه ثلاثة فصول  الفصل الأول في فرائضة  وهي ثلاثة المضمضة والاستنشاق وغسل جميع البدن على ما في المتون وحد المضمضة والاستنشاق كما مر في الوضوء من الخلاصة الجنب إذا شرب الماء ولم يمجه لم يضره ويجزيه عن المضمضة إذا أصاب جميع فمه كذا في الظهيرية (الفتاوى الهندية 1/ 13)
