Finding some partical of food in one’s tooth or some dirt in one’s toe nail after ghusal

Q: I made gusal to become free of janabah. I made my ghusal washed properly but once gusal was over I dressed, done a few other things and then realised that something was in my tooth but it seems it was there before I made ghusal. I used a tooth brush while in ghusal but found nothing. This dirt was found in a deep whole of my tooth. What is the procedure if something is stuck on the side of my toe nail. What should I do and is my ghusal made?



1. The ghusal is valid.

2. If the thing stuck on your toe nail was non-porous then remove it and wash that portion again.

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