Ghusl Naked nude

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Q-1: can ghusl be done in naked .

There is absolutely no restriction in Shariah if one wishes to purify oneself with a full bath or ‘ghusl’ in a state of nakedness.


Q-2: if so what are the conditions ?

The only condition when taking a full bath or ‘ghusl’ in the state of nudity is that none (except one’s spouse) should be able to see the ‘aura’ or private parts of the person performing the ghusl.


Q-3: if we do it naked , i ask you after ghusl we do ablution .will the ablution break?

The full bath or ‘ghusl’ is a bigger form of physical purification than the ablution; therefore one need not perform the ablution after one has done ‘ghusl’, as the ‘ghusl’ would more than suffice for one to stand for prayer.


The Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) when purifying himself from a major impurity by performing the ‘ghusl’ was that he (saws) used to perform the ablution first and then wash and pour water over his full body.


Being in the nude by itself does not invalidate nor effect one’s purification of ‘wudu’ (ablution) or ‘ghusl’ (full bath). But if one were to touch one’s private parts after one has performed or is in a state of wudu, then one would be required to do the wudu again.


Al-Muwatta Hadith 2.62

Yahya related from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar used to say, "If you touch your genitals, you have to do wudu."

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
