Is standing under a tap for ghusl valid or not?



In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful




Three acts are fardh in ghusl


  1. Gargling the mouth
  2. Putting water in the nose
  3. Making water reach the whole body in such a way that no place remains dry

(Fiqhul Muyassar, page 42, Majlis Nashriyaat Islaam)


Whilst standing under the tap if all 3 faraidh are carried out, then the ghusl will be done. However, care should be taken that the mouth should be thoroughly gargled and water should reach the soft bone in the nose.




Only Allah Knows Best
