This has been on my mind for a while and I have looked at several explanations but I’m still confused. Are we supposed to wash our private parts first and then the whole body once? Or are we not allowed to touch it during ghusl? Sometimes I am under difficult circumstances and I can’t do the sunnah but I really don’t know how the shorter version works. I would appreciate it if someone could tell me EXACTLY what to do just for farz. Also, not sure if it’s important to know for this but I’m female.
Simple. There are three steps that you should follow in order to perform the fara'id (mandatory steps) of the ghusl.
According to Wikipedia :
Farā'id of Ghusl (Hanafi Guidelines) There are three fard (obligatory) acts. If one of these acts is omitted, it must be returned to and completed before the remaining acts.
- Rinsing the inner mouth
- Sniffing water and blowing it out.
- Washing the entire body. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghusl#Far%C4%81'id_of_Ghusl_(Hanafi_Guidelines)
Washing the body means just pouring water over your body, especially over your private parts so that all of the impurities go away.
