What do the scholars and muftis of the mighty Shari’ah say regarding the following matter, if a man enters his finger into the private organ of his wife, will ghusl (ritual bath) become wājib (necessary) upon the wife or husband?

No! Ghusl will neither become necessary upon the wife nor the husband due to the man’s entering of his finger into the wife’s private organ. Just as it is stated in nūr al-īdāh, in the chapter entitled ‘ten things that one is not required to perform ghusl from’:

“Inserting a finger or something similar into one of the two passages of a woman will not necessitate ghusl”

[Nūr al-Īdāh ma’a Marāqī al-Falāh, page 44]
