If after doing wudu, I have a shower thoroughly, with soap/shampoo, will it be considered ghusl?


There are different obligatory requirements of ghusl according to the various schools:

  • having the intention to do ghusl
  • pouring water over the every part of the body
  • rubbing every part of the body
  • rinsing the mouth and nostrils

Using soap or shampoo does not play a part. As long as you have done the above actions your ghusl should be valid.
