GHUSL (Purification bath or Total ablution)
Ghusl is the Islamic method of washing the entire body with water in order to purify oneself from the state of major impurity. This form of purification is prescribed in the Holy Quran.

  • After Sexual Intercourse whether one ejaculated or not
  • After discharge of Semen due to Sexual Stimulation while awake or asleep
  • After menstruation
  • When bleeding stops after childbirth                                                   

The compulsory actions or Three (3)  Fard in Ghusl (Total Ablution) are as follows:​

  • To gargle 
  • To wash inside of nostril

* Cutting ones nail is not part of Ghusl however as part of cleanliness it is necessary to keep our nails trimmed and clean at all times.(See Below for nail cutting chart)

It is mandatory for a Muslim woman to perform Ghusl after her menstrual cycle so that she can perform Salah. It is not permissible for her to have intercourse with her husband until she performs Ghusl.

 [And they ask you about menstruation. Say, "It is harm, so keep away from wives during menstruation. And do not approach them until they are pure. And when they have purified themselves, then come to them from where Allaah has ordained for you.] [Quran 2:222]
Purification does not mean merely that the blood stops, but also the act of Ghusl afterwards.
