How to wash after menstruation?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions. Al-Ghusl (ceremonial washing of the whole body) after the menstruation period does not differ from all the other types of Ghusl such as Ghusl after sex or ejaculation. But it is more likeable for the woman who wants to perform the Ghusl after her menstruation period to start by unbridling the hair of her head as this is an obligation from the point of view of some scholars. Allah knows best.
