    What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: Is it necessary to wash the soft part of the nose in Ghusl, and what does it mean by the soft part of the nose – please can you mention its length as to what exactly is included in this, from where to where?

    Questioner: A brother from England, U.K.


    بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
    الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایة الحق والصواب

    The soft part on the inside of the nose which is known as Mārin in Arabic; the starting point is from the nostrils until the start of the hard bone – and as well as washing the inside of the mouth, it is also necessary to wash this, otherwise Ghusl will not be valid.

    Just as Sayyidī A’lāhadrat Imām Ahmad Ridā Khān, upon whom be infinite mercies, states that Ghusl will not actually be valid until the entire mouth is completely washed until the starting of the throat as well as from the bridge of the nose [i.e. the part between the two nostrils] until the start of the hard bone.
