What do the scholars and muftis of the mighty Shari’ah say regarding this matter: is it necessary to perform wudū for the prayer etc. after performing the obligatory ritual bath [ghusl]?
Questioner: Younis from UK
بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب
There is no need to perform wudū after obligatory ghusl, as long as there is no invalidator [nāqid] of wudū found in between performing ghusl and praying, this is because during ghusl, water is poured over the whole body, which includes those limbs that are obligatory to wash in wudū, therefore, one can pray without performing fresh wudū after obligatory ghusl.
