Question: Shaykh what are the rules on ghusl and release of ejaculation and how do you do the ghusl when you have a wet dream???
Answer:


RULES AND METHOD OF BATHING AND REMOVING RITUAL IMPURITIES


TAHARAT (CLEANLINESS) NIYAAT (INTENTION) OF GHUSL (BATH)

TO MAKE THE NIYYAT FOR GHUSL IS SUNNAT. One should make the intention of becoming PAAK (clean) from that impurity which he wishes to get himself clean from, E.G. I AM MAKING GHUSL TO BECOME CLEAN FROM JANAABAT (RITUAL IMPURITIES).



THERE ARE THREE FARZ IN GHUSL


1. Passing water into and out of the mouth, i.e. GARGLING.

2. Putting water into the NOSTRILS.**

3. Passing water over the entire body.



THERE ARE FIVE SUNNATS IN GHUSL


1. Washing hands up to the wrists.

2. Washing the private parts and the parts over which uncleanliness is found:

3. Niyyat of washing off Hukmi Najaasat.

4. Making Wudhu before washing the body.

5. Then passing water cover the whole body thrice.



Rules Whilst Making Ghusl


1. Ghusl should be made in a place of total privacy.

2. One should not face the Qibla whilst making Ghusl.

3. Ghusl may he performed standing or seated, preferably seated.

4. Use sufficient water. Do not skimp nor be wasteful

5. Abstain from speaking whilst performing Ghusl.

6. It is better not to read any Kalima or Ayah while bathing. Before performing Ghusl one should make

• Niyyat (intention) thus:I am performing Ghusl to become PAAK (clean).

• Without Niyyat there is no SAWAAB (reward) although Ghusl will be valid.



Procedure for Performing GHUSL


1. Wash both hands including the wrists.
 

2. Wash the private parts. The hands and private parts should be washed even if one is not in the state of JANAABAT or NAJAASAT.

3. If there is NAJAASAT elsewhere on the body, it should now be washed off.

4. Perform Wudhu. If one is making Ghusl on a stool or platform where water will rapidly flow away, then perform the complete Wudhu. If there is a fear of the feet being dipped in waste water during the Ghusl then postpone the washing of the feet to the end of the Ghusl. Ensure that the mouth and nostrils are thoroughly rinsed THRICE.

5. After performing Wudhu pour water over the head thrice.

6. Thereafter pour water thrice over the right shoulder and thrice over the left shoulder.

7. Then pour water over the entire body and rub.

8. If the hair of the head is not plaited, it is compulsory to wet all the hair up to the very base.

o If a single hair is left DRY, Ghusl will NOT be VALID.

If the hair of a woman is plaited, she is excused from loosening her plaited hair but it is COMPULSORY for her to wet the base of each and every hair. If she fails to do so then the Ghusl will NOT be VALID.

o As for men who grow long hair and plait them, they are NOT EXCUSED from leaving their hair DRY.

o If a woman experiences difficulty or is unable to wet the very bottom of her plaited hair, then it is necessary for her to unplait her hair and wash her entire hair.

9. It is MUSTAHAB (preferable) to clean the body by rubbing it.

o All parts of the body should be rubbed with the hands to ensure that water has reached all parts of the body and no portion is left dry.

10.Rings, earrings, etc., should be removed to ensure that no portion covered by them is left

dry. Ensure that the navel and ears are all wet. If they are not wet Ghusl will be incomplete.

11.On completion one should confine oneself to a clean place. If, while performing Wudhu the

feet had been washed, it is not necessary to wash them again. Dry the body with a clean

towel and dress as hastily as possible.

12.If after Ghusl one recalls that a certain portion of the body is left dry, it is not necessary

to repeat the (Ghusl Merely wash the dry portion. It is not sufficient to pass a wet hand

over the dry place. If one has forgotten to rinse the mouth or the nostrils, these too must

be rinsed when recalled after Ghusl has been performed.
