Can we muslims offer namaz with the ablution we do while bathing?
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:
can we muslims offer namaz with the ablution we do while bathing?or do we hav to perform a new ablution for offering prayers?

Wudu after ghusl
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The Ghusl or full bath is a bigger form of physical purification than the wudu; thus if one has performed the ghusl with the intention to purify oneself, there is absolutely no need or no obligation to redo the wudu before making oneself available for prayer.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs 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,
