Is Wudu necessary after Gusl ?

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.

Question: Is it necessary to do wudoo after Ghusal (full bath or shower)?

Regarding doing wudoo after taking a ghusal, please note that the ghusal itself is a bigger form of purification than the wudoo, that is why wudoo is not necessary. The Sunnah of the Prophet here is that especially after Janaaba (sexual intercourse), he would first wash his private parts, then perform wudoo, and then take the bath or shower. This is the Sunnah way of purification. Even if one just takes the ghusal, it will more than suffice, but of-course, to do the Sunnah way of purification is always better in the sight of Allah Subhanah.


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
