Ghusl is a ritual bathing in Islam. It should be used to make yourself more presentable to god. There are many rules and steps of how you do it, but you start with your head and hands and go all the way down. You may leave your hair unwashed, performing it.

I guess it is better to observe Janabah after your regular bath Ruth water and soap.

That way, you can clean out all manners of impurities (seamen inclusive) on your skin from head to the toes especially if you have oily skin like I do.

You can have your Janabah much cleaner after the soapy bath since Janabah is a soapless bath.

the ablution before the bath is mustahab (optional).

it can be performed in the following steps:

1.) wash your private parts clean.front and back.

2.) wash your head and ensure your head is sufficiently covered with water.

3.) wash your neck round and ensure everywhere is cleaned

4.) wash your right side of the body from up to right down to your feet-front and back.

5.) wash your left side of the body from up right down to your feet-front and back.

at this point you may use more water to wash yourself randomly.

you are good to go.

note:

1.) you may apply soap during or after the washing and there is no harm while performing the washing.

2.) you may decide to start by washing downwards toward the upper side of your body and there is no harm.the essential thing in washing your body in stages is to ensure you consciously wash every inch of your body and water cover every spot of your skin.

3.) make sure there is no ink or any mark or dirt on your body before washing.anything that could impede water from reaching any spot of your skin should be cleaned thoroughly and removed to ensure that water has reached your skin.

4.) do not forget to clean your navel.

As salaam 'alaykum, the general ruling of performing Ghusl is that water is evenly spread across all parts of the body. Thats why scholars say if there is a heavy downpour and you in a state of Jannabah, u can go under the rain, make your intention and make sure water touches your privates which are most times cladded by underwears. The different hadiths of Aishah and Memunah, can be summarized in the above point....

And Allaah knows best, any mistake therein is from me and I seek Allaah forgiveness from it ....

You are all right.

The main thing is that water must reach all parts of your body.

Note:

1) The bathing is without soap

2) It is bid'a to use water to rub your body from your navel to the neck after the ghusl

3) there is no problem if u delay the washing of leg till after the ghusl or washing it alongside with the ablusion

I think the hadith cannot be taken like that, Hadiths have to be explained in context to the time and and fiqh ruling.

Ghusl jannabah according to the 4 fiqhs

1. Wash the privates

2. Wash the hair by taking water to the roots of the hair

3. Performing ablution without washing of legs

4. Pour water across the body starting from right side (In Hanafi its from the center)

5. Lastly wash the legs

6. Shahadah

Wallahu a'lam.

ACCORDING TO SUMMARIZED SAHIH AL-BUKHARI,UNDER BOOK OF GUSUL, CHAPTER 1.

Narrated Aisha (rodiya lahu anha)the wife of the prophet (s.a.w):whenever the prophet(s.a.w)took a bath after janaba he started by washing his hands and then performed ablution like that for the salat(prayer).after that he would put his fingers in water and move the roots of his hair with them,and then pour three handfuls of water over his head and then pour water all over his body.

Could you please state how you do it or how it was stated where you read it then I could see if it is what i know to be the right one. You should note that there are very slight differences of doing it and this is due to differences in fiqh. This difference i know is very slight.
