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?
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.
