Ghusl ul-Hayz

When a woman becomes pure from menstruation, it is wdjib for her to perform ghusl. Apart from sexual intercourse, all the acts forbidden to her will remain so until she performs ghusl u'I-hayz.

The manner of performing ghuslu 'l-hayz is same as the method explained in Wudu' & Ghusl. For conve­nience of the reader, the manner of performing ghusl is also given here.

There are two methods of performing ghusl: Ghusl tartibi and ghusl irtimasi.

1. Ghusl Tartibi: After removing the najasat from the body and after niyyat, the body has to be washed in three stages: First, the head and the neck; then the right side of the body from the shoulders to the foot; and lastly, the left side of the body.

2. Ghusl Irtimasi: In this type of ghusl, after niyyat, the whole body should be completely immersed in water at once, not gradually. One has to make sure that all the parts of his body, including the skin under the hair, has been washed.

However, ghusl tartibi is preferred to ghusl irtimasi.

For other details about the manner of performing ghusl, see pp. 16-20of Wudu' & Ghusl.
