Ghusl Ablution

An acceptable namâz requires an acceptable ablution and an acceptable ghusl. Ibni 'Âbidîn wrote in his explanation of Durr-ul-mukhtâr: "It is fard for every woman or man who is junub and for every woman after haid (menstruation) and nifâs (puerperium) to perform a ghusl ablution when there is enough time to perform the time's namâz before that prayer's time expires."

There are uncountable blessings for those who do the fard. And those who do not perform the fard are very sinful. Rasûlullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) states in a hadîth-i sherîf written in the book Ghunyat-ut-tâlibîn: "A person who gets up in order to perform a ghusl ablution will be given as many blessings as the hairs on his body [which means very many], and that many of his sins will be forgiven. His grade in Paradise will be increased. The blessings which he will be given on account of his ghusl are more useful than anything in the world. Allahu ta'âlâ will declare to the angels: 'Look at this slave of Mine! Without showing any reluctance, he thinks of My command and gets up at night and performs a ghusl from janâbat. Bear witness that I have forgiven the sins of this slave of Mine. ' "

A hadîth-i sherîf written on the ninety-first page of the Turkish book entitled Hujjat-ul-islâm declares: "When you become impure, hasten to perform a ghusl ablution! For, the angels of kirâman kâtibîn get offended with the person who goes about while junub." It is written on the same page: "Hadrat Imâm-i Ghazâlî said he had dreamt of a person saying, 'I remained junub for a while. As a result, they have put a shirt of fire on me. And I am still on fire. ' "
