Gargling and sniffing water into the nose in ghusl

Question ID: 32794

Assalaam alaikum,

I have to questions related to ghusl
1. Is Gargling obligatory in ghusl? I have heard that Gargling is obligatory in ghusl.

2. In ghusl do we have to sniff water into the nose? I have heard that RasoolAllah (pbuh) used the word Istinshaaq i.e. taking the water into the nose and breathing it in to the end of the soft bone of the nose. Scholars say that Istinshaaq is obligatory in ghusl.
