Ghusl (Ritual Bath) - The Correct Order
  • Question:

    Would it be permissible to perform wudu (in the sink) then perform istinja and the rest of the ghusl in the shower – if impurities (minor) exit after performing or during wudu and the person is going to prayer later, can they continue and perform wudu before they begin the prayer?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    1. Performing the ablution (wudu) first would be contrary to the sunna. As the sunna is to first clean your private parts, then to perform a complete wudu, and then to take the bath (ghusl).

    2. If you perform a ghusl after the wudu, then you are in a state of purification. You do not need to repeat anything.
