Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani
Question: If I make ghusl but remember afterwards that I forgot some of the obligatory acts of ghusl, i.e, washing the face, nose, or some other part of the body, does it still count as ghusl?
Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Benevolent, the Merciful
Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
I pray this finds you in the best of health and spirits.
Order isn’t obligatory in ghusl (or wudu). [Shurunbulali, Maraqi al-Falah]
Thus, if something was omitted (with certainty, as doubts are ignored), one simply washes that area, and nothing else is required.
And Allah alone gives success.
