If I go into the shower with intention of doing Ghusl-e-Janaabat, and wash my head and neck, and rinse mouth and nose, then wash right side of the body, and then the left side; after this if I take a shower with soap without getting out or anything, will my Ghusl be valid i.e., will I be Junub after getting out of the shower or not?

Also, is it obligatory to not face even 45° in the direction of Ka'bah during Ghusl? Because my shower place is built such that I face Ka'bah while showering but I try to turn myself away as much as I can, so will my Ghusl be valid in this case?

Thank you!

  • Ghusl is valid as long as its obligations are met. Washing in some sequence or facing some direction has no effect on it.

    Does this answer your question? How to perform Ghusl? And is my ghusl valid?

As far as I know it's okay, as long as you've finished your ghusl, to shower as you normally would and use soap, shampoo, etc. And while studying shafi'i I never encountered anything about having to face away from qibla.
