Ask an Alim



Salamun alaikum
If someone does ghusl and finds nail polish on their left hand a few days later, is it enough just to wash that area or must the ghusl be repeated?


If there is a possibility that the nail polish would have been applied after the Ghusl, there is no reason to repeat that Ghusl. But if the nail polish was applied before the Ghusl and it was a barrier for the water to reach to nails, then you can wash that part with the intention to complete the previous Ghusl and there is no need to repeat the Ghusl. But you will have to perform the qada of all the prayers you have prayed after that Ghusl. (As per Ayatullah Sistani’s rulings)
