Is wudu done after gusl (bathing)? I have this question because you wash your whole body during gusl including hands, face, legs, ears and all other parts.

Is wudhu done after gusl?

To the best of my knowledge, solely a kind of Qusl (Qusl al-Jenabah) would be sufficient instead of Wudu. In other word, you don’t need for wudu after doing Qusl-a;-Jenabah. But after doing other Qusls, you ought to take wudu. (According to majority of Shia Marja’s)



Well Sunni madhabs made a lot of rules for ghusl, but the most important part of it is that water should reach the whole body.

Short answer

A short Answer for your Question could be find for Ghusl al Janabah (as an interpretation of Verse (5:6))

And if you are in a state of janabah, then purify yourselves وَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ جُنُبًا فَاطَّهَّرُوا

in this hadith narrted by um al-mu'minyn 'Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) which was qualified as once da'if and once as sahih in Jami' at-Tirmdihi and hassen in Sunan ibn Majah and Sunan an-Nasa-i.

So far this answer is in totally agreement with the one of our brother @ali-علی and the shi'a Marji's, but i would like to add some more information.

Some details

  • Now this Answer is valid for a Ghusl wajib this means ghusl Janabah, ghusl from menstruation etc.. But if this is a ghusl which is not fard/farz (for example ghusl for friday or 'id prayer ...) some scholars say this ghusl isn't valid for prayer even if you had the intention.

  • An other point if you during your ghusl have lost your tahara/purity you should do wudu after the ghusl!

Note that our Messenger used to do wudu as a part of ghusl (see my 2nd reference)!

Here are two fatwas on the mater Arabic and English!

And Allah knows best!
