More about the Ghusl.

On the authority of Maymoonah:

I brought The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) water to purify himself from janaabah, then he poured water on his hands and washed them two or three times, then he poured some water from his right hand into his left, and washed his private parts, then he struck his hand on the floor or wall two or three times, then he rinsed his mouth and his nose, and washed his face and forearms, then he poured water on his head, then he washed his entire body, then he moved slightly and washed his feet. Then I brought him a cloth, but he did not want it, and he started to wipe the water away with his hands.

(Narrated by both Al Bukhari and Muslim)

That which is extracted from this narration:

  1. In this hadeeth it is shown that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) washed his hands 2 or 3 times.
  2. After washing his hands, he washed his private parts then wiped his hands on the ground or wall two or three times. Some of the Scholars say this is to remove that which remains on his hands from oder or washing them with some other type of cleaner.
  3. This hadeeth clearly states that he washed his feet after the rest of his body.
  4. When Maymoonah brought him something to dry off with, it was not accepted, rather he used his hands to wipe off the extra water.
  5. That it is not necessary to wipe the body with the hands during the ghusl. It is Sunnah just like the wiping over the body in the wudoo.
  6. That you only need to make ghusl one time, even though some say 3 times because of the similarity between it and the wudoo. The reality of it though is that there is no making similitude when the narration is clear. This is the opinion of Ibn Taymeeyah, Abdur Rahmaan As Saadee and one of the statements from Imaam Ahmad’s Madhhaab.
