Will be my ghusl valid if I have fillings on my teeth?

Question:

I know that according our fiqh school (Hanafi madhab) we must rinse the inner mouth while perform ghusl (full body ritual washing). If I have dental fillings on my teeth, water can’t reach such teeth. Will be my ghusl valid in such situation?

Answer:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

 The Ghusl will be valid if you fulfill the basic requirements of Ghusl and gargle your mouth. The fillings will be considered to be part of the teeth as it cannot be removed without difficulty. It will not prevent the Ghusl from being valid. (Taqrirat ar-Rafi-ee, Vol: 1, Pg: 154)

 ويظهر أن علة عدم منع الطهارة فى هذه الأشياء (أي الحناء ولو جرمه والطين والدرن) الضرورة مع وصول الماء

And Allah Knows Best.

Wassalaam.

Mufti Suhail Tarmahomed
