Where does water need to reach in the nose for ghusal

Question ID: 34145

Assalaam Alaikum Mufti Sahab,

1. In ghusl do we have to sniff water into the nose or will pouring suffice?

2. I have read that “Istinshaaq” means taking water into the nose and breathing it into its backmost part. I have also read that according to Imam Abu Hanifa (RA) Istinshaaq is obligatory in ghusl and Isthintaar is desirable. (Durre Mandhuud p.167 & p.279 v.1)
