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 Brother, I have a question, one of my friends told me a beleiver must hide his/her private parts with some cloths/undergarments while taking a "Ghasul". Can you please clarify.

Ghusl naked nude
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.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3115 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: "Avoid being naked, for with you are those who never leave you (the Angels) except when you are in the privy (toilet, private bathroom, etc.) and when a man has intercourse with his wife; so observe modesty before them and honor them."
Islam absolutely discourages and prohibits nakedness, except in two circumstances:
- When one is in the privy, toilet, private bathroom, etc. relieving oneself, or taking a bath, or changing ones clothes, etc.
- When one is enjoying conjugal relations with ones wife.
Provided one is absolutely confident that one is absolutely alone and their satr will not be exposed to anyone (except their spouse in marriage), there is absolutely no harm and no restriction if one wishes to perform their ghusl or take their bath in a state of nudity in their private bathrooms. But if there is a fear or a probability that someone might be able to see or watch them, then it would be required to cover ones satr when taking a bath in public places or view.
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,
