1267 If one urinates during Ghusl (breaks Wuzu) does he have to repeat the entire procedure of Ghusl or only Wuzu is needed or no Wuzu and no Ghusl repetition is required? Please help I am in severe tension. Jazakallah
It is important that one relieves himself in the toilet before commencing the Ghusl to avoid such circumstances. As Muslims we need to be very careful whilst relieving ourselves. It reminds me of a Hadith where the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, ‘Be careful of the drops of urine [when urinating]; for this is the main reason for torment in the grave.’

Moving to your question, If a person is in need of Ghusl (ie Ghusl has become Fard on him), and whilst performing the Ghusl, he urinates then as the Ghusl had not been complete it would be required to repeat the Ghusl. However if the Fard of Ghusl had been completed and then urine is released, providing the body was not soiled , only Wudu (including Istinga) would be required in order for the Wudu be valid for Salaah , holding and reading Quran etc.

If the body does get soiled after completion of Ghusl then the soiled area has to be cleaned thoroughly and Wudu to be repeated.

If Ghusl was not Fard upon you then only Wudu (including Istinga ) would be suffice.
