When Do You Need to Do Ghusl?

First important thing about “does ghusl include washing hair?” what I will explain now is “when do you need to do Ghusl?”. I want you to understand that first before you read any further explanations in this article because it is one of the important questions in this discussion that should be well understood.

One important thing I want to say here is that what Ghusl means in this discussion is Ghusl Janabah (غُسْلُ الْجَنَابَةِ).

In general, if we read some Islamic legal literatures, we will find explanations that Ghusl is obligatory for Muslims if they have great hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَكْبَرُ) or Janabah (الْجَنَابَةُ). Great Hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَكْبَرُ) is an impure condition in Muslims that can only be removed with Ghusl.

In Islamic legal literacy, there is a difference between the things that cause Muslim men and Muslim women to have great hadas (الحَدَثُ الأَكْبَرُ) which causes them to perform Ghusl. I’ll explain it in a few paragraphs below:

When Do Muslim Men Need to Do Ghusl?

Now I will explain about “when do Muslim men need to do Ghusl?”. As Muslims, you must understand that because there is a difference between the things that cause Muslim men and Muslim women to do Ghusl.

In short, I would like to say that there are three things that make Muslim men need to do Ghusl. The three things I mean are as follows:

One: if the sperm has come out.

Two: if the penis is stuck to the vagina.

Three: if a Muslim men die.

When Do Muslim Women Need to Do Ghusl?

Now I will explain about “when do Muslim women need to do Ghusl?”. Muslim women must understand that because the things that cause them to need to do Ghusl are more than the things that cause Muslim men to need to do Ghusl.

In short, I want to say that there are six things that make Muslim women need to do Ghusl. The six things I mean are as follows:

One: if the sperm has come out.

Two: if the penis is stuck to the vagina.

Three: if a Muslim woman dies.

Four: if menstruation has finished.

Five: after giving birth.

Six: if the puerperium has been completed.

That’s a brief explanation of “when do you need to do Ghusl?”. As Muslims, we must understand that.
