Duration of Ghusal

Question ID: 31840

Assalamu Alaikum Respected Muftisaab,

(Question on Ghusl for Men)
Muftisaab I take extremely long while make Ghusl +-50 minutes. My main problem while making Ghusl is that all the areas / skin / hair has to be washed. I take extremely long while washing the area and hair around my Private parts. This has put a burden upon myself while taking a Ghusl.

Can Muftisaab please advice me on way to perform Ghusl without taking very long?

Your assistance will be highly appreciated.

Remove the hair often. Request a Mahram to time you. They should give you only 15 minutes at first and get you out. Further reduce the time after that.

Understand that Ghusl has only 3 Fardh - the entire body to be wet, gargle and flush the nose with water. Just do that. Every other thing is extra - i.e. soap, shampoo. Do not waste water. After washing an area once, do not return to it in doubt. Consider it washed.
