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.

1 Answer 1


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."
