Sunnats and Aadaab of Ghusal- Part 9

1. Do not waste water during the ghusal. Too much of water should not be used, nor should so little be used, that one is unable to wash thoroughly.

عن عبد الله بن محمد بن عقيل بن أبي طالب عن أبيه عن جده قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يجزئ من الوضوء مد ومن الغسل صاع فقال رجل لا يجزئنا فقال قد كان يجزئ من هو خير منك وأكثر شعرا يعني النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم (سنن ابن ماجة، الرقم: 270)

Hazrat Aqeel bin Abi Taalib (radhiyallahu anhu) reported that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, “One mudd of water is sufficient for wudhu, and one saa’ of water is sufficient for ghusal.” Hearing this, a certain person remarked, “This amount of water will not suffice us.” Hazrat Aqeel (radhiyallahu anhu) admonished this person and responded, “It would suffice the one who was better than you and who had more hair than you (referring to Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)).”

2. Do not engage in talking, singing or any type of conversation while performing ghusl.
3. Do not recite any duas while bathing.
