Wudu after Gusl
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Dear Burhan Bhai ASAK,
I would like to know that if one performs the Ghusl as per the sunnah way without wearing any clothes in a closed bathroom where no one can see through.
Is the person required to perform wudu or the Ghusl will be valid for prayers as I have read in Q&A archive that Ghusl is a bigger form of purification.
Await your reply.
May ALLAH subahanah rewards you appropriately for answering my question.

Wudu 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.
Ghusl or a full bath is indeed a bigger form of purification than the wudu or ablution; thus if one has performed the ghusl with the intention to purify oneself for prayer, he/she need not perform the wudu again after it, to be available for prayer; for the purification of ghusl would more than suffice. But if one wishes to perform ablution or wudu again after ghusl, there is no harm and the prayer will be considered valid.
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 in Islam,
