Do I Need to Make Wudu' after Ghusl ?


In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.

If one performs ghusl properly after post-sex impurity with the intention to remove the impurity, then his ghusl is sufficient and he does not need to make wudu' in order to perform Prayers. However, if one takes an ordinary shower or bath without the intention of making ghusl, and perhaps without washing all the parts of the body, then wudu’ is necessary before praying.

"If, while taking a shower or bath, you washed/gargled your mouth and rinsed your nostrils then you need not to make a fresh wudu'. Your wudu' is already included in your shower or bathing if you had formulated the intention (niyyah) for the same.

If, however, you did not wash your mouth or rinse your nostrils while having your shower or bath, then you should make wudu'. The reason for this is that washing the mouth and rinsing the nostrils is part of wudu'. Therefore, in case of omitting the same, one should make wudu'. Likewise, one is advised to make wudu' if after having had a shower or a bath he/she has intentionally touched the private parts."

Moreover, the late Sheikh Sayyed Sabiq (may Allah bless his soul) states the following in his well-known book, Fiqh As-Sunnah:

"If a person performed post-sex ghusl but did not make ablution, the ghusl will suffice. `A’ishah (may Allah be pleased with her) said, “The Messenger of Allah did not perform ablution after ghusl." Ibn `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said to a man who had told him that he performed ablution after ghusl, "You went too far." Says Abu Bakr Ibn Al-`Arabi, "There is no difference of opinion among the scholars that ablution falls under the category of ghusl.

If the intention was to remove sexual impurity, it also includes the minor impurities, as what sexual impurity prevents is greater than what the minor impurities prevent. The smaller one falls under the greater one, and the intention for the greater one suffices."

May Allah guide you to the straight path, and guide you to that which pleases Him, Amen.

Allah Almighty knows best.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him!

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
