Assalamualikum, I was gonna pray namaz today, but I had to do ghusl first, so I went and took a shower. But during my time taking shower I forgot about the ghusl part or I forgot to mention the words while doing ghusl. Is my ghusul still valid? Or do I have to go take another shower? I do want to add that all my body parts were covered in or touched by water.
You must intend ghusul before or during your shower. The words are not necessary as the Prophet said:
"Actions are according to intentions, and everyone will get what was intended."
