Making Ghusal with wax on ones body

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q. I went waxing yesterday and tried to take out all the leftover wax before I made ghusal but a few hours after I finished I found some wax on my knee. Should I repeat ghusal and salahs?

A. In the enquired case, it is not necessary for you to repeat your entire Ghusal performed with the wax on your body. It will suffice for you to merely remove the waxed area, wash it and continue with Salaah etc.

In the interim, if any Salaahs were performed with the wax on your body, such that water did not reach that area in Ghusal, it will be necessary for you to repeat those Salaahs performed in that state. (Al-Muheet-ul-Burhaani 1/82)
