Full bath after shave public hair

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.


We assume you wish to ask whether or not it is necessary or obligatory to take a full bath or ‘ghusl’ after shaving one’s pubic hair. 


Shaving one’s hair by itself neither invalidates one state of purification nor one’s state of wudu.  Although it is not obligatory or necessary in Shariah for one to take a full bath of purification after shaving one’s pubic hair; it would be recommended to take a bath, or at least wash the private parts thoroughly after shaving to maintain one’s hygiene.


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


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
